More than 100 methamphetamine labs have been dismantled in West Virginia this year, with Wood County topping the list with 57, including operations in Roane and Wirt Counties.

"It's a trend that goes from the West Coast to the East Coast and a lot of it has happened in western West Virginia," said Trooper Jay Powers, State Police spokesman. Police believe "crank" is moving across the state quickly.

Labs are frequently set up in bathrooms and kitchens.
