Here's a FloriDUH First: A safe mobile meth lab.

But not 'safe' as in chemically stable or non-combustible.

A man is accused of driving around Deltona, in Central Florida, with a small safe in the back of his vehicle that housed his mobile meth lab.

When deputies stopped Scott Shaw for allegedly rolling through a stop sign, they asked him what was in the safe in the back of his station wagon. Shaw reportedly told them, “A lab,” according to a Volusia County Sheriff's Office report.

Deputies said the 22-year-old man also made a point of telling them that all of the contents inside the safe had been packaged individually to ensure their safe transportation.

Whew! Doesn't that make you feel better?

Inside the safe, deputies allegedly found salt, lighter fluid, cold medicine, batteries, a pipe cutter and plastic tubing -- along with trash bag that contained pseudoephedrine (a common OTC drug used to treat nasal congestion) and a plastic soda bottle containing a white, powdery residue inside the car.

Scott and his passenger, 35-year-old Lindsey Chum, were both jailed. Scott was acharged with  possession of the listed chemicals; Chum was charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to sell, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia, records show.

Another hazard on the highway...removed.
