A Charleston man is charged with operating a meth lab in Boone County with two young children in the home.

Robert Stamper, 35, is charged with two counts of child neglect and operating a meth lab.

State Police investigators went to a Bloomingrose address where they had information about a meth lab being operated.

Inside, they found two "shake and bake" meth labs and Stamper hiding in a closet. According to court documents, Stamper was wanted in Kanawha County and "knew we was [sic] going to find the lab."

Two children, ages 3 and 11 months old were taken from the home.

Stamper is currently awaiting arraignment.
