Some bath salts aren’t really for baths, some jewelry cleaners don’t clean jewelry and now some “metal cleaners” aren’t for cleaning metal.
At about 12:38 a.m. today, a Laclede County Sheriff’s Office deputy pulled over a car with no license plate traveling north on Jefferson Avenue near Fourth Street. The deputy did find out that the car had a temporary tag.
The deputy asked dispatch to get information on the driver, a 34-year-old Lebanon woman, and her passenger, a 19-year-old Lebanon man.
While waiting, the deputy took out his K-9 partner and walked around the car. The dog alerted to the possible presence of narcotics on the passenger door by scratching, according to an LCSO incident report.
During a search of the car, the deputy found a modified straw with white residue inside the woman’s purse.
The woman handed a bottle of a substance called 99 MPH premium metal cleaner to the deputy. The woman said she had been putting the substance on her cigarettes.
