RUPERT, W. Va (WVVA)-- A man is behind bars after police discovered a meth lab in his home Friday.

Cpl. DJ Hinkley of the Greenbrier County Sheriff Office said in a report that he stopped a vehicle in Rupert for failing to give a signal before turning. 

He noticed when he approached the driver that both he and the passenger were nervous.

Hinkley said he discovered several pills and Aleve-D, a possible ingredient in methamphetamine, in the car.

The passenger, 24-year-old Ralph Ray, confessed to making methamphetamine in his mobile home.

Police searched the home and found a meth lab. According to the report, police determined Ray was using plastic bottles to make the drug. He said he learned how to do it online.

Ray is charged with manufacturing narcotics and is in southern regional jail on $15,000 bond.
