Meth Labs Become More Mobile

Posted: Updated:

HERMISTON, Ore. -- Hermston Police pull over a woman and find the ingredients for a meth lab in the back of a Camaro. 

Early this morning, police stopped Heather Juarez in a parking lot at North 1st Street and East Gladys Avenue. Juarez was driving with a suspended license.

 Oregon State Police's meth safety officer was called in to investigate the lab. Police say with increased emphasis on cracking down on meth, labs have changed.

Sgt. Tim Beinert says, "We're seeing an increase in [lab] mobility as they attempt to evade law enforcement."

   Police will only say Juarez was moving the meth ingredients in the Camaro. They say they have an idea where she was taking them but don't want to release it because of an ongoing investigation. We do know that Juarez was moved to jail.
