Agents raid suspected meth lab on Cypress Street

PARKERSBURG – The Parkersburg Narcotics Task Force arrested four people this morning on suspicion of running a meth lab at a Cypress Street home.

Era Dawn Corder, age unavailable, and three other adults were arrested early this morning 2617 Cypress Street after garbage caught fire during a morning trash run, tipping officials off to the possibility of a meth lab. Chief Joe Martin said officers secured a search warrant and found “components inside the home consistent with the manufacture of methamphetamine.”

Martin said there also was a child at the home and Child Protective Services was contacted. The investigation is ongoing and the adults are expected to be arraigned sometime this afternoon.
