ELLISTON – A 21-year-old man was arrested early Thursday after police raided an alleged methamphetamine lab at 4161 Bradshaw Road in the Elliston section of Montgomery County.
According to Lt. Brian Wright with Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, authorities executed a search warrant at the residence around 8:30 a.m. Thursday. The warrant was sought after a patrol deputy investigating a firearm case received information that a methamphetamine lab was located at the residence.
Police allegedly found items “associated with a meth lab” during the search, according to Wright.
John Allen Dooley was arrested on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of the central nervous system stimulant. He is being held without bond at Montgomery County Jail.
Wright said the investigation is continuing.
The Virginia State Police Tactical Team and Drug Recovery/Disposal Unit, Christiansburg Police Department and Drug Enforcement Administration Task Force assisted Montgomery County on the case.
