SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - Sioux Falls police are still looking for the driver of a car who fled the scene after hitting a utility pole Saturday afternoon and officers discovered components of a meth lab in the trunk.
Officer Sam Clemens says passengers in the car; 34-year-old Christina Vincent and 38-year-old Damion Franklin, were at the scene and charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute.
Clemens says the one-pot method of making methamphetamine is the most comon. He says it's small, portable and easily disposed by tossing the parts out of a car. He says there's probably more of this happening than police catch.
Clemens says Vincent and Franklin couldn’t say why the driver lost control of the car and hit the pole.
He says police have the suspect’s name but there has not been an arrest.
