Under cover drug agents defuse a mini meth lab found inside a porta-potty in the middle of a golf course Tuesday in Purcell.

Staffers noticed strange sports drink bottles with chemicals inside the porta-potty and called police.

Officers arrived and soon realized someone had been inside making meth using the "shake and bake" method.

Three bottles were found, two of them exploded before detectives arrived.

Agents were able to neutralize the third one without the harmful chemicals erupting.

"If someone would have been in the porta-pot when it happened they might have gotten hurt by the flying plastic and the chemicals," Purcell Dt. Cpl. Scott Stephens said.

Investigators said they have a lead on one suspect but said they believe others could be involved.

The inside of the unit was damaged but agents were able to submit latent fingerprints to a crime lab.
