GRUNDY, Va. —  A search warrant executed at two homes in the Patterson area of Buchanan County, Va. yielded three meth cookers and one arrest.

Upon searching the structures, officers found what is believed to be three active “shake-n-bake” methamphetamine cookers, according to Buchanan County Commonwealth’s Attorney Gerald Arrington.

Thomas McCloud, 23, of Cookville, Tenn. was arrested late Wednesday and charged with one count of possession with the intent to distribute a schedule I or II controlled substance and one count of conspiracy to possess with the intent to distribute a schedule I or II controlled substance, Arrington said.

McCloud is scheduled to be arraigned in the Buchanan County General District Court on April 22.
