Man Admits to Cooking Meth in Trunk While Driving



    Clear the Air

    A Rhode Island man has pleaded guilty to cooking meth in his trunk while driving around Glocester.

    The U.S. Attorney's office says 40-year-old Kevin Lewis of Glocester pleaded guilty on Tuesday of manufacturing methamphetamine in the trunk of his car.

    Prosecutors say he was stopped while driving in July by a police officer on a warrant from family court. The officer said he smelled acetone, which is associated with methamphetamine production, and also saw materials that can be used to make the drug.

    Prosecutors say authorities then searched the car and found a batch of meth being produced in the trunk.

    Lewis has been in custody since his July arrest. He will be sentenced at a later date.
