Police say they have nabbed a major producer of methamphetamine in Kinston with an arrest Wednesday night.
Kenneth West is being held without bond on charges of making meth, maintaining a home for selling controlled substances, and maintaining a vehicle for selling controlled substances.
Kinston police say they concluded a month long investigation with a raid on West's Tyler Road home around 5:00 p.m. They say they discovered a meth lab in a small wooded area behind the home.
SBI agents and a regional hazmat team were called in to assist Kinston police in the investigation and clean-up.
