“Mobile meth lab” busted in Botetourt

Christopher Paitsell and Brandon Wolfe

Botetourt County deputies have busted what they call a “Mobile Meth lab.” It was rush hour last Friday on U.S 460 in Blue Ridge when deputies pulled over a Jeep Cherokee and arrested two men from Craig County. The sheriff says 39-year-old Christopher Allen Paitsell and 21-year-old Brandon Matthew Wolfe are charged with making and possessing methamphetamine.

State police called out a Clandestine Laboratory Response Team to handle the hazardous materials inside the Jeep.  Sheriff Ronnie Sprinkle says the mobile lab “reflects the arrival of a new concern in drug enforcement in this area.”
