LANCASTER – A Lancaster traffic stop turned into a drug bust after deputies discovered a mobile drug lab inside a car that was stopped for speeding, authorities said.
The incident happened early Monday, when a Lancaster deputy who was working traffic enforcement stopped a speeding car on Avenue L near 35th Street West, according to Lancaster Community Relations deputy Michael Rust.
While talking to the driver, 23-year-old Jeremy Taylor, the deputy learned that Taylor was in possession of marijuana and hashish, Rust stated.
During the investigation, the deputy found additional containers of hashish as well as several pieces of equipment used in manufacturing hashish inside Taylor’s car.
Collectively, the equipment makes a complete “Hash Lab,” Rust stated.
Taylor was arrested and faces several drug related charges. His bail was set at $75,000.
