Walmart Madness #146! Another Walmart Meth Lab
"Police Sgt. Joe Nokes responded to a shoplifting call at the Walmart Supercenter at around 2:30 p.m. According to Nokes, the stores loss prevention team saw a man and woman take cold compresses and batteries out of the store without paying for them.
Nokes said lithium in batteries and ingredients in cold compresses are commonly used to make meth.
He said the couple tried to get into a red Saturn car, but the loss prevention members stopped them. The woman got into another waiting vehicle and left, but Nokes cited the man for misdemeanor shoplifting before he left on foot.
Nokes said he called in a K9 unit, and the dog alerted officers to the presence of drugs.
An active “shake-and-bake” meth lab was found in the trunk of the car. Police meth technician Chris Luna was then called to the scene, along with firefighters and public safety officials to secure the area surrounding the car."
