Kanawha County deputies arrested four people after a methamphetamine lab bust in Pinch Wednesday night.
Robert “Bob” Jarvis, 53, of Pinch, Roy “Shawn” Pittman, 42, of Charleston, Thomas Huffman, 41, of Clendenin and David Moore, 58, of Charleston were arrested and charged with operating a clandestine laboratory.
When deputies and members of the Metro Drug Unit responded to 206 Broadlawn Terrace, they saw various people hiding meth-making materials, Capt. Sean Crosier said. Deputies also said that was the residence of Robert Jarvis.
On Wednesday, deputies discovered what they described as a "medium size" clandestine laboratory.
The four who were arrested were taken to the South Central Regional Jail.
Jarvis was arrested by the Metro Drug Unit about six months ago at the same home for allegedly making methamphetamine. That home was cleaned and made safe after that first arrest. No word on whether the home will be condemned.
