Police arrested a Braxton County man after he apparently tried to hide what was left of an old meth lab.

Officers got a call that 41-year-old Jack Jenkins (left) was trying to get rid of the remains of a meth lab in the Scotts Fork area.

After officers arrived, they found Jenkins and another man in a car.

The other man reportedly told police that Jenkins threw two backpacks of materials over a hillside.

Following a search, officers found the backpacks and charged Jenkins.
