State Police said a Charleston man and his son face charges after a trooper found meth-making materials in a van during a traffic stop.
James Russell Jones, 52, and Cody Elton Jones, 24, of 5020 Kanawha State Forest Drive were charged Monday with operating or attempting to operate a clandestine drug laboratory, according to criminal complaints filed in Kanawha County Magistrate Court.
The complaints said the trooper was on routine patrol on Oakhurst Drive approaching the intersection of Berry Hills Drive behind a Dodge Caravan. After requesting a check on the van’s registration, the officer found it was registered to another vehicle.
James Jones told the officer he had no insurance on the vehicle and the registration on the mini-van belonged to his brother, the complaint said. The trooper also discovered the father and son previously had been arrested on meth-related charges and were out on bond.
The officer received permission to search the vehicle, and the officer found a backpack in the front passenger floor with meth-making materials inside, the complaint said.
