Older told officers he might have a mobile meth lab in his wrecked truck.
The Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Identification searched the vehicle and found an active, partial mobile meth lab.
Older is charged with fleeing and eluding, production of methamphetamine and possession of chemicals to make meth.
