A Beaver man is facing a drug charge after authorities say they found meth-making materials inside his home.

Ronald Roberts II, 36, was arrested and faces one count of operating a clandestine lab, according to a criminal complaint. 

State Police said they smelled a strong chemical odor associated with the making of meth coming from Roberts' Beaver home. Inside the trailer police found meth-making materials, including used lithium batteries and altered pseudoephedrine pills, according to a Raleigh County criminal complaint.

Roberts told police he allowed two women to make meth inside of his home in return for money. His parents, who declined to talk with Newswatch on camera, believe his son was set up by his on-and-off again girlfriend. 

Ronalds II was arrested for violating a domestic violence petition just hours before his drug arrest, according to his father. He remains in Southern Regional Jail on 75,000 bond.
