A traffic stop by an Okaloosa County deputy led to a discovery of a mobile meth lab and two arrests.

Teresa Marie Phillips, 49, of Milligan and David Gene Legros Jr., 33, of Baker were driving on Keyser Mill Road in Baker on Monday, July 1 when they were pulled over for speeding. During the course of the traffic stop, the deputy was given consent by Phillips to search the car which led to the discovery of the lab.

The search yielded a plastic bottle with ingredients consistent with the “shake and bake” method of making methamphetamine, a tin with a marijuana grinder, a smoking device and a red plastic straw with a white powdery substance on it.

Phillips and Legros have been charged with trafficking in methamphetamine. Phillips additionally faces a charge of attaching a car tag not assigned to the car, and traffic citations for speeding and no proof of insurance.
