Motorcyclist Arrested with “Shake and Bake” Meth Lab

POPLAR BLUFF, MO. (KMOX) – Poplar Bluff Police say they arrested a motorcyclist who had a “shake and bake” meth lab strapped to the back of his bike.

Around 1 p.m. today officers say 33 year old Michael Hon failed to stop at Cherry Street and South 5th.

When they tried to pull him over, police say he fled.  He was stopped after a short pursuit but police say he continued to resist and had to be restrained and handcuffed.

That’s when they found what they call an actively reacting meth lab on his motorcycle.  Officers say the bottle contained significant pressure and could have exploded and caused injury to the suspect and police officers.

Michael Hon has been booked on charges of Possession of a Controlled Substance, Attempt to Manufacture a Controlled Substance, Resisting Arrest and several traffic violations.  Hon is being held in the Butler County jail.
