Police: Napping man had meth lab in bed of truck
GOOD HOPE, Ill. — Authorities said sleeping behind the wheel wasn’t the only problem for a western Illinois man they caught napping at a gas station. Police said 26-year old Adam Barcroft also had a meth lab in the bed of his truck. The McDonough County Sheriff’s Department said Barcroft was asleep at a Good Hope gas station Monday when deputies discovered him.
He was arrested, and his truck was pushed away from the gas pumps.
The Illinois State Police Methamphetamine Response Team then arrived and secured the truck.
Officials said they recovered several items used to make meth, 2 grams of finished meth and $238 in cash.
Barcroft, of Monmouth, faces five drug-related charges.
It wasn’t immediately clear whether he has an attorney.
