Nicholas County deputies said two people face multiple charges after numerous guns, methamphetamine making materials and a “shake and bake” meth lab were found at a residence.

Doming Mitchell Morales and Kandie Stephenson were arrested on charges of operating a meth lab, altered precursors, possession with the intent to deliver, two counts of child neglect and possession of explosives, according to a news release from the Nicholas County Sheriff’s Office. Morales also was charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm.

On Sunday, a deputy responded to a domestic dispute on Clothing Lane, off of Armstrong Road. After obtaining a search warrant for the residence, the deputy found the guns, meth making materials, a lab, items used for packaging meth and explosive blasting caps, the news release said.

Child Protective Services was called to attend to the two juveniles at the residence. Morales and Stephenson are currently being held at the Central Regional Jail. Morales' bond was set at $95,000 and Stephenson's was set at $90,000.

The sheriff’s office was assisted by West Virginia State Police.
