Just after 10 o'clock Monday morning, Parkersburg police responded to a possible break-in on 17th Street.

While investigating the incident, officers found items that could be used to make methamphetamine. The Narcotics Task Force then got a search warrant and, once inside the home, agents found more drug paraphernalia.

Joshua Whitlock is charged with attempting to operate a clandestine meth lab.

He's in the Wood County Holding Center on $100,000 bond. He could face up to 10 years in prison.
