A couple was arrested after State Police said they found a meth lab in a camper in Elkview.
April Holmes, 29, of Elkview and John Wyne, 41, of Falling Rock were charged with conspiracy and operating a clandestine drug lab about 10 p.m. Monday, according to a criminal complaint filed in Kanawha County Magistrate Court.
State Police said when they arrived at a campsite on Jordan Creek Road in Elkview they smelled the strong odor of meth coming from a camper. They received permission from the owner to search the camper and found meth-making items, the complaint said.
Holmes told State Police the couple had been staying at the camper about two weeks, the complaint said.
