Two Huntington women arrested in meth bust
HUNTINGTON — West Virginia State Police arrested two women on methamphetamine charges near Huntington.
Those arrested were Jessica Leigha Burgess and Regina Lynn Solvine, both 30, and residents of a home in the 4400 block of Siders Avenue, according to court and jail records.
Troopers, responding to complaints of drug activity in the area, visited their home and received Burgess’ consent to search it.
The search revealed meth-making material and a child’s bed, along with toys and clothes. Burgess told troopers her 6-year-old daughter stays there from time to time, according to a criminal complaint filed in Cabell County Magistrate Court.
Burgess and Solvine were charged with attempting to operate a clandestine drug lab, conspiracy and meth exposure to a minor, according to court and jail records.
Troopers visited the home about 10 p.m. Wednesday. Solvine, not at the residence when troopers arrived, later turned herself into authorities.
Both were incarcerated at 1:08 a.m. Thursday in the Western Regional Jail. They were later arraigned by Cabell County Magistrate Matt Woelfel. He set bond at $35,000.
The Siders Avenue residence is located just outside Huntington, along W.Va. 2, northeast of the city.
