Two men were charged with possession of a controlled substance when North Liberty police officers allegedly found a meth lab in their car.

Officers said Jeremy Lafler, 30, drove into a driveway at 21 Holiday Lodge and ran on foot before officers apprehended him. Lafler had been barred from driving in Iowa, according to the report.

Officers reportedly found two bags containing two to three grams of meth. Lafler has two prior convictions for possession of a controlled substance, according to the report.

Lafler’s passenger, Clark McKey, 57, had a syringe on his person and was within reach of the small bag of meth, the report said.

Police are investigating the meth lab they reportedly found in the car, according to the report.

Possession of a controlled substance, third or subsequent offense, is a Class D felony, punishable by up to five years in prison and a $7,500 fine. Possession of a controlled substance, first offense, is a serious misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year in prison and a $1,875 fine.
