ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A woman faces multiple charges after being arrested for allegedly possessing meth-making materials at a south St. Louis County gas station Monday night. The incident came just two weeks after she was accused of bringing a mobile meth lab into a nearby Walmart.
Police said Jennifer Culp, 32, from Arnold, was arrested at the UGAS station in the 6100 block of Telegraph Road around 9:30 p.m. Monday. According to reports, Culp was in possession of a “shake and bake” meth lab.
Authorities say “shake and bake” meth is made by combining chemicals in a plastic bottle, then shaking them up to mix them.
St. Louis County Police took her into custody, where she was charged Tuesday afternoon in both cases.
Culp was arrested June 7 after a Walmart in south St. Louis County had to be evacuated when officers allegedly found a suspicious bottle in Culp’s purse. Culp was initially approached on suspicion of shoplifting, but officers later found a bottle inside her purse with a substance bubbling inside.
Authorities later determined that Culp was making meth using the “shake and bake” method. Other meth-making materials were later found in her vehicle.
Carp remains in custody on $100,000 cash-only bond.
