A third person is facing charges after an active methamphetamine lab was found in Salem on Thursday afternoon.
Kenneth Jakob Shelton , 25, and Lisa Gail Mason, 50, were taken into custody about 2:30 p.m. Thursday after officers with the Salem Police Department, Virginia State Police and the Roanoke Drug Enforcement Agency Task Force found an active clandestine meth lab in a home in the 300 block of North Bruffey Street, Salem spokesman Mike Stevens said in a news release.
Later Thursday afternoon, Kenneth Junior Shelton, 52, was arrested.
The officers were serving a search warrant as part of an investigation into the manufacture of methamphetamine, Stevens said.
Each of the three was charged with six separate offenses: manufacturing 100 grams or more of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine precursors, possession of methamphetamine, manufacturing methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a school, possessing a firearm while manufacturing methamphetamine and conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine.
Mills said Kenneth Junior Shelton lives in the home where the lab was discovered and is Kenneth Jakob Shelton’s father. He did not know Mason’s relationship to the Sheltons.
The younger Shelton and Mason were inside the home when officers entered, Stevens said Thursday. Mills said the elder Shelton was found elsewhere and arrested without incident a few hours later.
