Four people were arrested after police said they discovered a shake-and-bake methamphetamine lab inside a Logan County trailer.
Paul Cochran, 37, Martha Cochran, Amanda Woody, 29, and Michael Farris, 24 were arrested and charged with operating a clandestine meth lab, Chapmanville Police Chief George Spangler said.
Officers were on patrol Wednesday night when they noticed smoke coming out of the trailer on Frankfort Avenue in Chapmanville.
When Sgt. D.J. Miller and Patrolman B.A. Mynes approached the trailer, they said, they smelled a strong chemical odor and knocked on the door.
The officers received consent to search the home, where they found materials found to make a shake-and-bake clandestine lab, according to a criminal complaint from Logan County Magistrate Court.
West Virginia State Police also assisted in collecting evidence from the scene. All four were taken to the Southwestern Regional Jail.
