Walmart Meth Lab Suspect Arrested Again at Oakville Gas Station
The woman was arrested Monday night in connection with another mobile meth lab.
Officers from the South County Precinct responded to a suspicious person call at approximately 10:30 p.m. and observed the woman throw a bottle toward the dumpster.
Police recognized the woman as Jennifer Vaughn, who was arrested June 7 after officers found a portable meth lab in her purse at Walmart. Vaughn had been detained on suspicion of shoplifting when officers discovered a bottle containing meth, also known as a "shake and bake" lab.
Officials evacuated the Walmart and closed the store for nearly three hours.
County police discovered a similar bottle at the U-Gas and also found meth-making materials on Vaughn. The bottle was contained without incident and Vaughn is now in 24-hour custody.
Formal charges will not be issued for Vaughn until the crime lab analyzes the bottles.
