Ohio Air Force security probe mobile meth lab

Published:

RIVERSIDE, Ohio (AP) -- Security crews at Wright Patterson Air Force Base are investigating a suspected meth lab on wheels.

Authorities shut down a portion of Colonel Glenn Highway for several hours Sunday after military police stopped a pickup hauling a trailer because of a faulty license plate and because of loose siding on part of the trailer.

The Dayton Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/19Bvmlg ) that a container holding a type of methamphetamine was found during a search of the trailer.

Police from the Air Force base and neighboring Riverside took a male and female suspect into custody.

Police and fire officials safely dismantled the lab.
