MARTINSBURG, W.Va. -- A Martinsburg man accused of operating a methamphetamine lab at his apartment received a two- to 10-year jail sentence Monday in Berkeley County Circuit Court.
Jason Aubrey East, 26, of 121 Church St., Apt. 4, pleaded guilty Monday to one felony count of attempting to operate a clandestine drug operation.
East was charged in February after Martinsburg Police Department officers found cooking apparatus in a closet of the apartment and items associated with manufacturing methamphetamine after the agency was contacted about an ongoing dispute between East and a woman.
A search of the home was carried out after two West Virginia State Police troopers stopped a Lincoln Town Car that East was driving left of center on Interstate 81, according to court records.
