Woman Arrested With Meth Lab In Her Purse (teh newzhounds)
Missouri police said Thursday that they arrested a 32-year-old female shoplifter at a Walmart store in St. Louis County and found a portable meth lab in her purse.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that the female culprit shoplifted an item unrelated to meth-making, after which store security and police searched her purse and discovered a 20-ounce bottle containing methamphetamine. Police evacuated the Walmart store for about three hours.

Deputy Chief Dan Furrer with the Mehlville Fire Protection District told Patch.com that the fire district and meth lab unit responded and seized the "shake and bake" lab without incident. The fire district responded as a precaution to police officers.

"It had the potential to be flammable or blow up at any time," St. Louis County Police Lt. Mark Cox told the Post-Dispatch. He said the trend of cooking small quantities of the drug for personal use is on the rise.

No one was reported injured and no harmful substances or fumes were discovered inside the store, which re-opened later that evening.

Police told the Post-Dispatch that the woman and a male companion were arrested. Their names and ages were not immediately released. Police also said they confiscated meth-making precursors - bottles of medicines, pills and chemicals - from the suspects' car in the Walmart parking lot.

I have to wonder just how dangerous this stuff really was.

The police seem to have a habit of exaggerating the danger associated with shit they find if there is any drug connections.

I was once stopped by a real stupid cop who found some kind of reading magnifying glass in my bag that he just didn't understand and he asked me what it was.

In fairness, it didn't look like a magnifying glass. You had to press a little switch for the glass to pop out and he couldn't figure out how to do that. I certainly wasn't going to help him.

I was tempted to tell him that it was a "thermonuclear device" and he should be careful but I decided that wouldn't be terribly wise and so I just told him I didn't understand what he meant and every time he asked me anything else, I just told him I didn't understand the question.

He got so frustrated that he almost had a stroke. I managed to control myself but on the inside I was laughing my ass off at this stupid jerk.

In the end, I guess he decided that he didn't want to appear too stupid for not knowing what it was and he just let me go with a warning. I was tempted to ask him "a warning against what", but again, I decided to just let it go.

The police culture doesn't work when an individual cop is just too stupid to understand it.

the vapors given off during the manufacturing process and the liquid form of those vapors are extremely flammable and without proper ventilation, the reactions are usually very explosive.
