KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — Deputies arrested two suspects in a stolen vehicle and discovered a mobile meth lab on Monday, according to the Klamath County Sheriff's Office (KCSO). The arrests occurred just after 6 p.m. on April 23, at the corner of Summers Lane and Ezell Avenue.

Deputies spotted a "primer-colored" Honda pulling into a driveway on Ezell Avenue, and conducted a traffic stop when they were able to confirm with dispatch that the car was previously listed as stolen in a Klamath Falls Police case.

Two suspects were in the vehicle and were arrested at the scene—30-year-old Jonathan Mitchell and 24-year-old Pauline Carnagey. Upon a search of the vehicle, officers found drug paraphernalia. Inside the Honda's trunk, officers found equipment used to manufacture methamphetamine.

KCSO called in the Basin Inter-agency Narcotics Enforcement Team (BINET) who were able to confirm that the equipment amounted to a small mobile meth lab. As a precaution, Oregon State Police (OSP) Haz-Mat personnel responded from Salem to investigate and dispose of the materials.

Carnagey has been charged with Unlawful Use of a Motor Vehicle, Unlawful Manufacture of Methamphetamine within 100 Feet of a School, and Unlawful Possession of Methamphetamine.

Mitchell has been charged with Unlawful Use of a Motor Vehicle, Unlawful Manufacture of Methamphetamine within 100 Feet of a School, and Probation Violation.
