WESTON, W. Va. — An anonymous tip lead to possibly the largest amount of meth labs found in one location ever in the state Monday night.
Lewis County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Nicholas Grant Cutlip after discovering 84 meth labs in his Weston home, two of which were operating at the time.
A majority of the labs were beverage bottles repurposed for the “Shake and Bake” method of manufacturing meth.
Cutlip has been charged with 21 counts of operating or attempting to operate a clandestine drug lab.
Because of the amount of meth labs discovered, the case will likely go to federal court.
Cutlip is being held in Central Regional Jail in lieu of $500,000 bail.
