CHESTER — Two people have been charged after deputies found them with the makings of a methamphetamine lab in their Chester County home Wednesday night.
At about 6:15 p.m., drug agents with the Chester County Sheriffs Office searched a home on Gregg Avenue, where they found equipment and chemicals consistent with manufacturing a meth lab, according to a Chester County Sheriffs report. Some of what they found included the addictive street drug already in its powder form.
The two people inside the house, William Mayberry Horne, 47, and Shannon Ingram White, 45, were searched. Deputies found coffee filters in Whites pocket that investigators believed contained meth residue, the report states. After he was taken to jail, authorities found Horne with meth powder, as well.
Horne and White are both being held at the Chester County Detention Center. They will be charged with conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine and possession of methamphetamine.
