Pulaski police filed methamphetamine-related charges against two people after finding what was described as an inactive methamphetamine lab on Monday night when officers came to a motel room to serve a warrant.
Police arrived at the Budget Inn in the 500 block of East Main Street about 11 p.m. to arrest Terry Lee Draper on a charge of felony possession of morphine, according to a news release. After locating Draper in the room where he was reportedly staying, officers found a woman hiding under a bed in the room.
The woman was identified as Autumn "Nikki" Koert, who had an outstanding warrant for manufacturing meth. According to the release, while officers were taking Koert into custody for the outstanding warrant, they noticed what appeared to be precursors for manufacturing meth in the room.
The room and adjacent rooms were evacuated, and investigators from the Claytor Lake Drug Task Force and the Virginia State Police executed a search warrant.
The precursors located were determined to be inactive but there was what appeared to be meth in the room, though the release states lab results will have to confirm the substance.
Draper, 33, and Koert, 27, both of Pulaski, were charged with manufacturing a Schedule I or II controlled substance and possessing precursors to manufacture meth, according to the release.
Both were being held in the New River Valley Regional Jail on Wednesday.
