A shake and bake methamphetamine lab was found Saturday morning in a women’s rest room at Walmart in Boaz.
Boaz Police Chief Terry Davis said a cleaning crew found a Nestle water bottle and five empty packets of pseudoephedrine between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m. in a stall in the restroom in the front of the store. He said the cleaning crew contacted managers, who contacted police.
Davis said the pseudoephedrine was another store’s brand and not a brand available at Walmart, so it is unclear why someone would bring the ingredients into the public restroom to make the batch of meth there.
Residue was found in the bottle, and it is believed the meth that was produced was removed from the bottle and possibly used in the restroom.
Davis said an investigation is continuing.
