RITZVILLE — A traffic stop led Adams County Sheriff’s Office deputies to discover what they termed a possible mobile meth manufacturing lab.

The driver of the vehicle, Victor Rincon of California, stopped in the middle of the road on First Avenue, according to an ACSO social media post. He was booked for DUI with the help of Washington State Patrol troopers.

Deputies found an illegally concealed loaded gun in the car, and several full containers of likely meth.

“All containers were field tested and tested presumptive positive for methamphetamine,” the post said. “The vehicle is believed to be a manufacturing mobile meth extraction lab.”

Rincon is in the Adams County Jail for suspicion of illegally manufacturing an illegal substance, methamphetamine.
