Sprinkle, in the release, said “it reflects the arrival of a new concern in drug law enforcement in this area.”
The Roanoke Times has more on this story.
Here’s the full release from Sheriff Sprinkle:
Botetourt County undercover deputies busted a “mobile meth lab with its two alleged cooks” on US 460 in Blue Ridge at 5:30 p.m. in the middle of rush-hour Friday, and Sheriff Ronnie Sprinkle says “it reflects the arrival of a new concern in drug law enforcement in this area.”
Sheriff Sprinkle identified the two as Christopher Allen Paitsell 39, and Brandon Matthew Wolfe, 21, both of New Castle, and said that both have been charged with manufacturing and possession of methamphetamine.
The two Craig County men are in the Botetourt-Craig Regional Jail in Fincastle, awaiting arraignment, which has not been scheduled.
The Virginia State Police Clandestine Laboratory Response Team was called to examine and process substances found in the 2000 Jeep Cherokee, and in turn called contract specialists to perform hazardous-materials removal and decontamination functions.
