(KMOV) – Authorities said two suspects are in custody after police found multiple methamphetamine labs at a home in Carlinville on Tuesday.

Jesse Shaw, 62, and Ronald Chapman, 24, were both charged with methamphetamine manufacturing, possession of methamphetamine precursor and possession of methamphetamine manufacturing material.

According to police, officers were investigating a home at 510 Orange St. around 1:45 p.m. when they saw someone run toward a shed in the back of the property.

Authorities followed them and smelled a strong chemical odor coming from the shed. That’s when they saw chemicals used to make meth in plain sight.

Officers got consent to search the shed and found two active meth labs.

Both suspects were arrested and taken to the Macoupin County Jail on a $75,000 bond.
