Cops: Woman cooked meth inside Walmart

Reply Sat 9 Jun, 2012 09:11 pm
A woman in St. Louis, Mo. was arrested this week after police said she was caught shoplifting and cooking a small amount of methamphetamine inside a Walmart, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The chemical concoction was found inside a soda bottle in the woman's purse after a Walmart employee confronted her about stealing cosmetics from the store.

Later the store's security and police discovered a 20-ounce bottle containing the drug. The Walmart was then evacuated. No one was injured.

The trend of cooking small quantities of meth for personal use--referred to as "one-pot" batches-- is on the rise, the paper reports.

"There are lots of one-pot cooks," St. Louis County police Lt. Mark Cox told the paper. "But taking it into Walmart is very unusual."

I think Hawaii would have either of them beat. It is THE drug of choice here and its use has reached epidemic proprotions. Well, at least according to the drug enforcement authorities at both state and Federal levels. As in California, pot can be legally prescribed by an MD, so it probably doesn't enter the equation when figuring which drugs are most in use.
