Greenbrier County Sheriff's deputies arrest two men on drug charges.

Michael Nelson and Jonathan Eggleston were arrested after admitting to deputies they tried to make meth in the Monongahela forest, using the shake and bake method.

The fire department responded, searching the area for the boyfriend, Michael Nelson, and the girlfriend.   That's when they came across Jonathan Eggleston and another woman parked in the woods.   With them, officers found the items needed to make meth.

Eggleston told deputies the items belonged to him but the bag belonged to Nelson.   Deputies tell us he also told them he cooks meth at his home several times a week.
