A man from Jackson Township is behind bars, accused of operating a methamphetamine lab out of his house.

Drug agents and police from both Mahoning and Trumbull counties raided the home at 2460 State Route 45 on Thursday, which is owned by Elias Lee Bray, 31.

Officials with the Mahoning Valley Law Enforcement Task Force said they conducted a three-month investigation prior to Thursday’s raid, where they reportedly found a lab, chemicals and other items used in making methamphetamine. Items were found inside and outside the home, according to police.

Bray is charged with trafficking in methamphetamine, but more charges may be filed later.
