UPDATE 4/22/2014 9:55 AM

It comes down to 5 to 15 years in prison for one Parkersburg man.

Judge Waters sentences Terry Abbott to two to ten years for operating a meth lab.

But because he's a repeat offender the judge doubled his sentence to four to ten years.

On top of that, Abbott's conspiracy to operate a meth lab lands him 1 to 5 years.

Both sentences run consecutive, so Abbott will spend 5 to 15 years in prison.

He was arrested June 4th last year.


Not one, but two homes were searched Tuesday in Parkersburg, in a meth lab raid resulting in two arrests.

The two were in separate homes on Staunton Avenue.

Arrested were Terry Anthony Abbott, and his wife, Trina Anne.

As with previous raids, this came about as a result of your calls to local law enforcement.

"The guys have been working a lot of hours," says Parkersburg Police Chief Joe Martin, "but, nonetheless, it's been very fruitful in the number of arrests, in identifying not only users but suppliers to the Parkersburg area."

The Abbotts are charged with operating or attempting to operate a clandestine meth lab, and were arraigned Tuesday afternoon.

Sgt. Greg Collins says Terry Abbott is being held on a $100,000 cash-only bond, while Trina Abbott is held on a $100,000 surety bond.

The Parkersburg Police and Wood County Sheriff's swat teams took part in this raid, one of several warrants executed in recent weeks.
