BECKLEY (WVVA) - Police looking for marijuana at a Raleigh County home ended up finding materials typically used in the manufacture of methamphetamine.

Mark Anthony Lyons, 44, was taken into custody around midnight Tuesday morning. Police initially visited Lyons' home at 1204 Fayette Street regarding an investigation related to marijuana. Upon arrival, police say they found paint thinner, acetone and hydrogen peroxide -- materials commonly used in homemade meth labs.

Lyons is currently charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm and child neglect -- a 6-month old child was also living in the home.

Charges related to the suspected meth lab are pending.

Lyons' wife -- also a resident of the home -- has not been charged at this time.

Police say Lyons is originally from the Florida area.

The EPA is assisting in the investigation.
