A Charleston man was arrested after police said he was found with shake-and-bake meth.
Randolph Jennings Wilson, 33, was charged Friday with operating or attempting to operate a clandestine drug laboratory and obstructing an officer, according to criminal complaints filed in Kanawha County Magistrate Court.
The complaint said Wilson was found in in the 900 block of Central Avenue with a 2-liter plastic bottle that contained suspected meth-making materials, commonly referred to as the shake-and-bake or one-pot method.
Police said the method is considered extremely dangerous because exposure to air could cause the lithium strips in the bottle to react and result in an explosion.
Wilson was lodged in the South Central Regional Jail.
