Jones stops by Touch of Class Auto occasionally to check the progress of his bike.Police say they found an alleged meth lab in the back of the car detail business. 

“It totally took me by surprise, I hate to see him in this type of a problem, he’s had some unwanted’s that stayed around here from time to time I know he’s run several of them off told them to get away from here,” Jones said.

According to state troopers, one five-gallon bucket had several one-pot meth labs inside. Green admitted to troopers he made meth in the garage for personal use. Jones said it was unbelievable, Green’s artistic ability should have propelled him to success.

“I hate that it happened because he is talented, his ability to do stuff with air brushes is just amazing,” he said.
