A man and a woman were arrested Wednesday after police executed a search warrant at a Christiansburg home and found an active methamphetamine lab.
Thomas Wayne Perdue, 28, was charged with conspiracy to manufacture meth, manufacturing more than 228 grams of meth and possession of precursors for the manufacture of meth. Tabitha Nichole Roberts, 26, was charged with conspiracy to manufacture meth and possession of meth.
Police spokeswoman Becky Wilburn wrote in a news release that officers executed the search warrant about 11:15 a.m. in the 400 block of Light Street and determined a “live cook” was in process.
Both Perdue and Roberts are believed to reside at the home, according to the release.
Blacksburg police and the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office assisted Christiansburg police with executing the warrant. The Christiansburg Fire Department also responded to assist with cleanup, Wilburn said.
Perdue and Roberts were being held Wednesday afternoon without bond at the Montgomery County Jail.
