Working meth lab busted in Walmart store
IS WALMART offering enterprising types the chance to open a store inside its stores? Until recently, a store inside a Walmart in South St. Louis County, Missouri, was producing drugs in what police called an “active methamphetamine production laboratory”.
One news report tells us the “lab” involved a female shoplifting suspect making “meth in the loss prevention office.”
Good to see she’s not wasting her time. American was built of hard yakka and chutzpah.
“Loss prevention had detained the woman, and she was placed in a holding area until officers arrived. While she was detained, she began cooking meth in the holding room.”
It turns out that you can fit a meth lab inside your handbag:
Portable meth labs, also known as “shake and bake” labs, are typically made out of a two-liter or 20-ounce water bottles.
Shake and bake? Like this:
Emptying all but the last few sips from a liter of Aquafina, he peeled off the outer layers of a lithium battery and crushed two packets’ worth of Sudafed. He sprayed starting fluid into the plastic bottle and added the final few ingredients, including a few tablets of ammonium nitrate fertilizer. Then he commenced to shake the container like a maraca.
That experince ended in disaster when the toop of teh bottle as unscrewed snd blew up in the lab worker’s face.
Still, it’s encouraging to k wo that science and small business zones have rarely been more popular…
