ST. PETERS, Mo. (AP) – A St. Louis-area scooter shop owner is facing charges after police say they found a methamphetamine lab, guns and more than $19,000 in cash in his office.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 49-year-old Bradley Gelber of St. Peters was among five people arrested Friday in a roundup of alleged members of a meth ring. Gelber does not have a listed attorney and the voice mailbox for his business was full and could not accept new messages.

Gelber is owner of Brad’s Scooters. A narcotics officer went to the shop, acting on a tip that Gelber was the financier and front man for the meth ring.

Authorities say officers had to shoot and kill a dog that attacked them while arresting another suspected ring member.
