OMAHA, Neb. —Omaha police said two people were arrested after they were found making methamphetamine in a truck. Early Thursday, a K-9 unit officer found the truck in violation of the park curfew at Pipal Park, west of 72nd and Center streets.

The officer approached the truck, smelling marijuana police said.

According to police, the occupants of the vehicle, Lee Thompson-Nash, 24, and Nicolas Sendgraff, 20, were in the process of making meth.

“It’s not a system of tubes and cooking pots that are set up for people to cook meth,” said Officer James Shade.

The two are suspected of using what is known as a “shake n’ bake.”

“It’s a Gatorade bottle or a pop bottle that they insert all the chemicals into and the chemical reaction causes it to heat up and cook if you will inside that bottle,” Shade said.

Shade said Omaha doesn’t usually see this type of meth being made. Most of their busts deal with the crystallized form of the drug.
