Two people were arrested Saturday night after West Virginia State Police found meth-making materials at a home in Cross Lanes.

According to Trooper Demaske, a whiteness called 911 about a suspicious vehicle and possible meth lab in a home on the 5100 block of Dublin Drive just after 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 16.

State Police obtained a search warrant for the house. Inside, they found altered pseudoepinephrine and other meth-making materials.

Troopers arrested the owner of the home, Mark Kessel, 51, and his girlfriend Loynda Boggess, 37. Kessel has a 17-year-old daughter who lives at the home, but was not home at the time of the arrest.

Police also recovered a stolen ATV and .22 caliber rifle on Kessel's property.

Kessel and Boggess are charged with attempting to operate a meth lab, conspiracy to operate a meth lab, altering pseudoepinephrine, exposure to a minor, and two counts of possession of stolen property.

They are being held at South Central Regional Jail on $50,000 bond.

West Virginia State Police are investigating.
