The call of a possible impaired driver in St. Marys leads police to a mobile meth lab and puts three people behind bars.

Russell Traugh, Morgan Francis and Travis Taylor were arrested in connection to the drug bust.

It all happened in the parking lot of a St. Marys fast food restaurant around midnight Saturday morning. When police arrived on scene they found the suspect's vehicle.

A drug K-9 gave a positive indication on the vehicle and a primary search of the car produced meth as well as other controlled substances.

When police checked the trunk they found what they believe to be an active meth lab. The St. Marys fire department and the Mid-Ohio Valley Drug Task Force were called in to recover the meth making materials.

Traugh, Taylor and Francis are all at the North Central Regional Jail.
