A Chapmanville homeowner took suspicions and drug paraphenalia to the West Virginia State Police.
Needles, foil wrappings with a white powdery substance on them and clear bottles with a white crystal substance in them were turned over to officers.
The homeowner consented to a search of the residence, where officers found a couple who had items suggesting the possible production of methamphetamine (meth).
The criminal complaint says Sarah Ann Young, 25, and Brandon Workman, 28, were occupying the same room in the residence.
Upon entering the room, officers asked Workman if he had any weapons or drugs on his person. He admitted he had a pocket knife and meth in his pants pocket. A hollowed-out battery containing thirteen individually, tin-foiled, wrapped packages of meth were found as Workman was searched.
Other procuress including lighter fluid and needles individually separated in tin foil pieces were found in the room.
A ledger of paper describing the amount of meth the defendant sold in the past was also recovered.
Young and Workman were each charged with possession with intent and conspiracy. Bond for each was set at $15,000.
