NEW MARTINSVILLE, W.Va -- Officials with the New Martinsville Police Department said two people have been arrested in connection to manufacturing methamphetamine.

Around midnight Thursday, officers went to room 210 at the Plaza Inn in New Martinsville to serve a warrant and found traces of the items used for making methamphetamine. 
With the assistance of West Virginia State police, New Martinsville police arrested 24-year-old Michael Briggs and 29-year-old Amanda Long.

The owner of the Plaza Inn told officials the couple check-in earlier Wednesday afternoon. Officials say the owner has been cooperating with them in this investigation.

"Shake and bake is what it looked to be," New Martinsville Police Chief Tim Cecil said. "We backed out as soon as we seen it. We notified state police and had the fire department on stand-by."

Long and Briggs were scheduled to be arraigned Thursday afternoon.
