MEHLVILLE (KMOX) - A woman was caught cooking meth in her purse using a 20-ounce soda bottle inside of the Walmart store on Telegraph Road at I-255.

The store was immediately evacuated, out of fear for customers’ safety.

St. Louis County Police Lt. Mark Cox said if the meth concoction had spilled or leaked, it would have quickly circulated through the store’s ventilation system, contaminating the building and sickening lots of people.

“The sergeant on the scene that helped to dismantle it said that it was cooking when they showed up, and had the potential to become flammable or blow up at any time,” he said.

    Every element, including the fact that it happened at a Walmart is not a surprise.

    Why??? Why the hell was she making Meth in her purse, IN WALMART? If she went there to steal the ingredients or something, why the hell didn’t she take them and leave? That was beyond stoopid! Especially considering you can get a bottle of 30mg Adderall (Amphetamine Sulfate) from the WM Pharmacy for $20!!!! I Promise you! Of course I also promise you that I have the cleanest truck and yard in Hillsberry again! Yada yada yada…. Well, Off To work, again!!!

    Personally,I think anyone caught making meth should be shot after being found guilty.

    Hang on a sec… Maybe if she pulled an Elizabeth Warren, “I’m native American” claim, she could get away with it. She can tell them she’s a
    Methpurse Indian.

    You know…like- Nez Perce?
