State police found two methamphetamine labs in a Madison Heights motel this week.

Acting on a tip, troopers executed a search warrant at the Bestway Inn on South Amherst Highway in Madison Heights at about 3 p.m. Thursday, First Sgt. Tony Barksdale said.

Investigators discovered two small meth labs in a motel room. Barksdale described them as “one pot” labs, which sometimes are called shake and bake set-ups.

Jonathan D. Larson and Jessica A. Hanson, both 30 from Lynchburg, were in the room when police arrived.

They have both been charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, possession of precursors with intent to manufacture methamphetamine and manufacturing a controlled substance within 1,000 feet of a school.

Police also searched Larson’s car in the motel parking lot, where they found more evidence of drug manufacturing, Barksdale said.
