ROLLA, Mo. -

A Rolla man was arrested last week after a search uncovered an active meth lab in his Phelps County home.

Dale Perry Sr., 58, was arrested Thursday after multiple agencies searched his home in the 1000 block of Private Drive 8044.

According to a post on the Sheriffs Department Facebook page, investigators found an active methamphetamine lab and a large quantity of suspected meth on Perry's property.

Perry was charged Friday with felony drug possession and drug trafficking.

He was being held in the Phelps County Jail on $250,000 bond Saturday night.

The "short term investigation" was conducted by agents from the Rolla Police Department, Phelps County Sheriffs Department and the South Central Drug Task Force.
