2 busted for meth after car runs out of gas

VIENNA, Mo. (AP) - Two Missouri men are facing charges after the car they were in ran out of gas - and responding officers allegedly found a mobile meth lab.

KSDK-TV reports that Maries County deputies responded to a call about a suspicious person on Route 68 near St. James around 3:30 a.m. Thursday. Sheriff Chris Heitman says deputies found a vehicle that had run out of gas.

They then found the two men from the car, along with components of "shake-and-bake" meth, which is typically made by shaking up ingredients in a 2-liter soda bottle. Both men are now jailed.
