ABINGDON, Va. — A Meadowview man was arrested on drug charges Monday after officers with the Washington County, Va., Sheriff’s Office busted a mobile methamphetamine lab Friday night, according to a news release.
Steven Tyler McCracken, 21, 28111 Lee Highway, was charged with four counts of the manufacture of methamphetamine and one count of possession of precursors.
During a check on two vehicles that were parked at a business on U.S. Highway 58 in the Osceola Community late Friday night, an officer noticed a container inside McCracken’s vehicle that is commonly used to transport narcotics. After getting McCracken’s consent to search the vehicle, the officer reportedly found some prescription pills and several materials that are commonly used in the manufacture of methamphetamine, including four “shake and bake” bottles.
McCracken was taken to the Southwest Virginia Regional Jail, where he was being held in lieu of $2,500 bond. He is scheduled to appear in District Court on Sept. 19.
Additionally, Robert A. Walls, 44, 171 Pennington Branch Road, Troutdale, was released on two summons for two narcotic possession charges. He is scheduled to appear in District Court on Oct. 19.
