Woman clears Wal-Mart with purse 'meth lab'6/8/2012
One woman's attempt at multi-tasking ended with a Wal-Mart store being evacuated after she was allegedly caught shoplifting while cooking meth in her purse. Store security and police say they discovered the "one pot" batch of methamphetamine in a soda bottle in the woman's possession. They evacuated the crowded South County Wal-Mart store in St. Louis County, Mo., due to the volatile chemicals involved. No one was injured, and the woman and her male companion were arrested. "There are lots of one-pot cooks," said St. Louis County police Lt. Mark Cox. "But taking it into Wal-Mart is very unusual."
