CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- A potentially explosive situation was discovered on Charleston's west side.

According to the criminal complaint, Charleston Police found Randolph Wilson in the 900 block of Central Avenue Friday morning with a shake and bake meth lab in a two liter plastic bottle.

This method can be extremely dangerous because it requires lithium strips, which can explode when they are exposed to air, according to investigators.

Wilson was arrested and charged with attempting to operate a meth lab.
