Comments Off on ‘It’s extremely dangerous:’ Willoughby Police find mobile Methamphetamine lab in trunk of car; Kristi Reis, 34, arrested

WILLOUGHBY, Ohio – Willoughby Police said a driver is lucky that her car didn’t explode after she loaded the trunk with the makings of a meth lab.

Kristi Reis, 34, was arrested after police said they discovered the mobile meth lab in her trunk.

A Willoughby police officer patrolling early Sunday morning spotted a drug deal taking place in a parking lot of a motel, police reported. That officer followed one of the drivers onto Route 2. Police said the officer activated his lights and sirens but the driver would not pull over.

Police describe the chase as slow speed. According to police, when Reis finally stopped, she admitted to buying heroin and her driver’s license had been suspended.

When police searched the car, they found all the parts needed to make a mobile meth lab, said to Det. Lt. John Schultz. “It’s extremely dangerous,” said Schultz.

“The driver, she is lucky that nothing happened to the chemicals while she was driving and there wasn’t an explosion in her vehicle,” added Schultz.

The other person who was involved in the drug deal, police said, is 19-year-old Ralonte Brown. Both Brown and Reis made their first court appearance on Monday.

According to police, more charges will be filed against Reis in connection with the mobile meth lab.
