Madison police say two men from Iowa came here looking for the main ingredient in methamphetamine.

Police say 30-year-old Torey Huegli and 26-year-old Grant Lee Miller were arrested Sunday, after buying a large amount of Sudafed, which contains pseudo–ephedrine.

In addition to hundreds of tablets of Sudafed, police say they also found other items related to making meth, along with a handgun and ammunition in their vehicle.

Meanwhile, some Wisconsin lawmakers say meth is such a growing problem in the state, they're proposing a military style boot camp for people who deal in methamphetamines.

"We are seeing a rapid increase, especially in the northwest region of Wisconsin," says Dr. Shawna Kovach of Chippewa Falls.

"I just needed that initial step to get away from it, get it out of my system now I feel really good again," says Jamie Abrahamson, a meth offender.

A group of Wisconsin drug policy makers, including state Representative Scott Suder, toured a Minnesota boot camp Monday where most of the inmates are meth addicts.

It's a rigorous program, but only two percent end up back in prison.

Suder wants to build a similiar program here, and require all inmates with meth offenses to go through it.
