Police: Cyclist Had Meth Lab in Backpack

KSAL StaffJune 26, 2013
Police say a search of the backpack turned up what they called an active, "one-pot" mobile meth lab.

If only he’d been riding in the street, a bicyclist who Pittsburg police say had a meth lab in his backpack might have gone unnoticed.

But the 29-year-old man from Nevada, Mo., caught the eye of an officer in the southeast Kansas community Tuesday morning because he was riding on a sidewalk.

The officer tried to make contact with the bicyclist. The man instead rode away before he was stopped a few blocks away.

Police say a search of his backpack turned up what they called an active, “one-pot” mobile meth lab. The man was arrested on suspicion of making and possessing methamphetamine, felony possession of drug paraphernalia, and obstruction.

He also got a ticket for riding a bike on the sidewalk.
