Investigators in St. Charles County, Mo., have arrested a scooter shop owner after they searched his shop and found an active methamphetamine lab, several loaded guns and more than $19,000 in cash in his office.

Officers busted two other labs and made four more arrests on Friday, and court documents filed today say the suspects are included in the same ring.

Members of the St. Charles County Regional Drug Task force went to Brad's Scooters in St. Charles County Friday, acting on a tip that Gelber was the “financier and front man for a substantial methamphetamine ring,” according to court papers cited in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

Officers said they found some methamphetamine in a container in the front pants pocket of shop owner Bradley E. Gelber, 49, then searched the business and found the lab.

A spokesman for the drug task force said the county condemned the business. The suspects were all charged in St. Charles County Circuit Court.
