(WMC-TV) – Just after 3 a.m. early Friday morning, Memphis police doing a routine traffic stop picked up more than just a road violation. Patrol officers stopped a two door Ford truck for driving with antique issued license plates. Those types of plates only allow you to drive the vehicle on weekends and special occasions. After making the stop, police discovered that the 43-year-old driver had his license suspended and that he was on probation for manufacturing of meth. MPD then did a primary search of the vehicle and discovered what police refer to as a “Shake N Bake” plastic bottle, which is commonly used in rolling meth labs. The suspect was immediatley placed into custody and was put in the back of a squad car as the officers began the search on the inside of the truck. After looking in the cab, undercover officers discovered a second “Shake N Bake” and other ingredients for meth inside under the seat.
Pretty easy to laugh at this guy right now. Haha what an idiot. Wrote “Meth Lab” on the back of his traveling meth lab. But I’d be willing to be that to date this is one of the most successful dealers Memphis has ever scene. First of all, you gotta advertise your product. Let people looking for meth know who’s got it. Don’t see ice cream trucks riding around in all white vans with no music, do you? Second of all, this is Memphis. Every old school pickup truck is a suspected meth lab. Best way to throw the cops off their game is to shove it right in their face. For years they’ve probably been laughing about that quirky dude in the Ford with Meth Lab written on his truck as he drove down Main St delivering straight crystal shit with 99 percent purity, bitch!
