RUPERT, W. Va (WVVA)-- Police say 31-year-old Justin Alex Taylor was making shake-and-bake meth in his garage using soda bottles

It happened on Dogwood Street in Rupert.

Police originally searched Taylor's property looking for a stolen chainsaw. They found it-- but they also found a meth lab in a tool chest, along with several stolen handguns.

Taylor confessed to the crime.

He was charged with one count of manufavturing methamphetamine and is jailed on $10,000 bond.

Deputy Gideon Tate of the Greenbrier County Sheriffs Office said this type of meth is typically created in soda bottles because of the thick plastic and tight caps.

But it's dangerous, he said-- even more dangerous than creating the drug the traditional way. "It's combustable to begin with, and just with it being in a tighter, more compact space, it makes it easier for it to expand too quickly and just explode," said Tate. "So it's not only harmful for the preparer, but for everybody in the household."

Tate said this type of meth takes less time to crystalize and more portable, but that doesn't mean it's any less illegal.
