A resourceful shoplifter set up a mobile meth lab inside the loss prevention office of a St. Louis County Walmart, prompting a hazmat team to come and dispose of the disaster. After being caught shoplifting, the 32-year-old woman was taken to the office to wait for police. Bored, she decided to pass the time by cooking meth in a 20oz soda bottle from stashed inside of her purse. That’s the “shake and bake” method for those out there who aren’t in the know.

Police arrived to discover the woman cookin’ up and evacuated the store. A search of the woman’s vehicle produced the materials typically associated with cooking meth. Missouri is the meth capital, and a woman in Oklahoma pulled a similar stunt last year, so this is a common practice.
