A man was arrested in Nitro after police said they found methamphetamine in his pockets and numerous items consistent with the production of meth in an outbuilding behind a residence.
Michael Scott Law, 29, of Dunbar was charged Wednesday with operating or attempting to operate a clandestine laboratory, according to a criminal complaint filed in Kanawha County Magistrate Court.
The complaint said a Nitro officer responded to a complaint about possible drug activity at 250 40th St. When the officer arrived, he said, he received consent from the homeowner to search the residence. The officer said he encountered Law, received consent to search him and found five individually wrapped bags of meth.
Law, who police said had a strong smell of meth on him, also allegedly told the officer he had items in the outbuilding, where police said they found numerous items consistent with the production of making meth, the complaint said.
Law was lodged at South Central Regional Jail.
