Police: Man was producing meth in trunk of car


GLOCESTER, R.I. (AP) — Authorities say a Glocester man is in federal custody after police discovered a batch of methamphetamine being produced in the trunk of the car he was driving.

Forty-year-old Kevin Lewis appeared Wednesday in federal court in Providence on charges of manufacturing and possessing methamphetamine with the intent to distribute.

Police say they stopped Lewis’s car on Tuesday because there was an active warrant for his arrest.

During the traffic stop, police saw items used during the production of meth in the backseat.

A search of the car’s trunk turned up a batch of meth in the process of being produced.

Police also found three hydrochloric acid gas generators, a container of meth and other items used in meth production.

It’s unclear whether Lewis is being represented by an attorney.
