(KMOV) — Police have uncovered high tech surveillance cameras, loaded weapons and thousands of dollars inside a St. Charles County business.
They call the owner of a scooter shop a major player in the drug game. Neighbors are relieved he’s locked up, but customers of the legit side of the business found themselves caught in the middle.
Customers showed up to Brad’s Scooters only to find that police had shut it down. One customer says he had already paid $1,500 for a 4-wheeler, but, Brad’s in jail and they’re out of luck — for now. Police say the business was hiding a meth lab inside.
Police believe Brad Gelber was the money man for a big meth-making ring in St. Charles County. He and Thomas Scurlock, Chantel Harshbarger, Jeffrey Runyon and Thomas Runyon were all busted Friday night when police took down three different meth labs.
Drug Task Force investigators say they found meth cooking inside the office at Gelber’s scooter shop, along with loaded guns and $1,900 cash. High-end security cameras and a microphone system kept a 24-hour watch on the shop.
