2 arrested in mobile meth lab bust

WEST CHESTER, OH (FOX19) - West Chester police arrested and charged a man and woman in connection with what they're calling a likely "rolling meth lab."

Darrell Jones, 52, of Dayton is charged with felony drug possession and a misdemeanor charge of possession of drug paraphernalia.

Laura McCoy, 49, of Blanchester is charged with illegal manufacturing of drugs, possession of chemicals used to produce drugs, possession of drugs, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police say the two were spotted around midnight Monday morning. Officers spotted a white, 1999 Ford F-150 truck with the Ohio license plate GEC3092 in the parking lot of a closed business at 485 Wunnenberg Way.

The truck was pulling a trailer with no plates, loaded with tires.

Officers called a HazMat crew and the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation to respond to assist after finding materials used to make methamphetamine inside the vehicle.

Both Jones and McCoy were arrested, charged, and are being held in the Butler County Jail.

McCoy also had two prior warrants relating to drugs from Clinton County and Hillsboro.
