Two people are in jail on meth charges in St. Albans, WV.

According to a news release issued by the St. Albans Police Department, Mylissa Jennings Messer, 29, and Jason M. Racer, 31, were arrested Wednesday, Nov. 20, and charged with attempting to operate a clandestine drug lab, as well as conspiracy.

The release says that while checking on a probationer, Messer, at the El Rancho Motel in St. Albans at around 12:35 p.m., two Putnam County probation officers discovered a working meth lab.
