PROVO — Officers from the Utah County Major Crimes Task Force busted up a suspected meth lab at The Boulders Apartments Sunday.

According to an arrest report, the officers found two bags of chemicals needed to make methamphetamine, as well as unidentified liquids, in a storage shed at the apartment complex. A witness told officers that the lab belonged to Colter Vest.

When police tried to talk to Vest he invoked his Miranda rights, the report states. Fingerprints and the chemicals were sent to a lab for testing. Vest was booked into jail on one count of possession of a clandestine lab, a first-degree felony. His bail was set at $12,500, cash only.

A follow up investigation by Provo Special Enforcement Team officers led officers to the home at 2153 W. 360 South in Provo. Provo Metro and Utah County SWAT team members executed a search warrant at that home and arrested four additional individuals on drug-related charges.

Thirty-four-year-old Kimberly Behunin, 29-year-old Ann Baker and 21-year-old Austin Nicholas were arrested for possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia, and 50-year-old Richard Bell was also arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia.
