St. Louis County, MO (KSDK) - A woman suspected in a shake and bake mobile meth lab at a South County Walmart has been arrested again, the St. Louis County Police Department said.

Police said a woman was taken into custody Monday night at the U-Gas, located on Telegraph in South County.  She has been identified as 32-year-old Jennifer Vaughn.

Employees told police Vaughn was acting suspicious.  Police said Vaughn had a bottle of a meth-making product at the gas station.  She was arrested at the scene.

Vaughn was previously accused of trying to cook meth while she was detained by a loss prevention worker at a Walmart in a suspected shoplifting case.   She was placed in a holding area until officers arrived.

While she was detained, she had a 20-ounce soda bottle in her purse that was cooking meth while she was in the holding room, according to police.

"It could actually ignite the fuel inside the bottle and could basically turn into a little fire bomb," said St. Louis County spokesman Rick Eckhard.

Vaughn is facing six charges related to meth possession and possession of meth making materials for the Walmart incident.

She is held on a $100,000 cash-only bond.
