SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The car was a-rockin’, so the law went a-knockin’. Bexar County sheriff’s deputies drawn by the actions of an amorous couple in a parked car allegedly found more than amour. Deputy Ino Badillo told the San Antonio Express-news that they also found enough equipment and chemicals in the car to start a methamphetamine lab.

Badillo said deputies checked out the 1991 blue Oldsmobile 88 after neighbors reported it parked in an unusual spot near a house near Randolph Air Force Base, just northeast of San Antonio. He said a 26-year-old man and 25-year-old woman were charged with public lewdness and manufacture of a controlled substance. Badillo said both were being booked into the Bexar County Jail.

Actor Tab Hunter is 78. Actress Susan Seaforth Hayes is 66.  Actor Bruce McGill is 59. Singer Bonnie Pointer is 59. Actor Stephen Lang is 57. Actress Mindy Sterling is 56.
