Two McDowell County men were arrested after police said they found them making methamphetamine with a 10-year-old boy in the residence.
Timothy H. Stone, 51, of War and Thomas Perkins, 34, of Warriormine were arrested Sunday after police received a call that meth was being made at a residence in Warriormine, according to criminal complaints filed in McDowell County Magistrate Court.
War Patrolman Nathan Blevins said he received consent to search the residence and he saw Stone, his spouse and his 10-year-old son. He also said he saw Perkins sitting in a room with multiple bottles of a smoking mixture with a strong odor, and appeared to be in the process of making meth. Blevins said he determined that it was an active meth lab.
Stone was charged with operating a clandestine laboratory, felony conspiracy and child neglect with risk of injury. Perkins was charged with operating a clandestine laboratory and felony conspiracy.
