LOGAN, W.Va. — On Wednesday, July 20, 2016, deputies from the Logan County Sheriff’s Department assisted Logan County Home confinement officers with a home visit at the residence of Amos Scott Holland, which is located on Holland Drive near Chapmanville.
According to a press release from the Logan County Sheriff’s Department, upon arrival at the residence, deputies reportedly detected a strong odor consistent with the manufacturing of methamphetamine. Upon approaching the entrance to the residence, thick smoke was detected as well as the odor becoming stronger.
While speaking with Holland, he advised deputies that he had been “vaping” which was causing the thick smoke. Upon inspection of the residence by Home Confinement officer Chad Martin and Logan County deputies, precursors consistent with the manufacturing of methamphetamine were allegedly located as well as an amount of substance believed to be meth, which was reportedly packaged in a manner for sell and distribution.
Also present in the home was Alexandria Holland, Amos Holland’s wife. In addition to the substance located, Alexandria Holland allegedly was found to have meth on her person. Both Amos, 21, and Alexandria, 21, were arrested on charges for operating a clandestine lab and for possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine.
Both individuals were processed by the Logan County Sheriff’s department and were arraigned in Logan County magistrate court. They were remanded to the Southwestern Regional Jail on a $25,000 each.
The Logan County Sheriff’s department will continue with the investigation.
