Police say they arrested two men in connection with the discovery of a mobile meth lab in Milan, Illinois.

It started at about 8 p.m Saturday, July 8, 2012 when police stopped Jessie Haradon, 30 and Bradley Hessell, 31 in the 2100 block of Canal Road in Milan. 

Quad City Metropolitan Enforcement Group agents and the state police Methamphetamine Response Team were called in when police found evidence consistent with meth production.

What they found is a mobile meth lab setup consistent with those called “one pot method” or “shake and bake” labs. 

Haradon and Hessell, both from Moline, Illinois, were arrested and held in the Rock Island County Jail.  Both men were charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance and with possession of methamphetamine-making materials.  Additional charges were expected.
