FREDERICA, Del. (WBOC/AP)- Delaware State Police say troopers arrested two brothers after a search of a Frederica home uncovered a meth lab.

Thirty-five-year-old George W. Shahan Jr. of Frederica has been charged with manufacture with intent to deliver a controlled substance (methamphetamine), aggravated possession of drugs, possession of a firearm by person prohibited, second-degree conspiracy and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held in the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in lieu of $12,250 secured bond.

Thirty-four-year-old Kenneth J. Shahan, also of Frederica, was charged with second-degree conspiracy. He was released on $2,000 unsecured bond.

Troopers executed a search warrant on the home on 200 block of South Market Street on Thursday morning. Detectives said they found component mixtures of the manufacturing stages of meth along with ingredients used in making the drug. According to police, George Shahan was also found to be in possession of approximately .02 grams of meth and seven round pills that were later determined to be oxycodone and acetaminophen.

Police said South Market Street between South Frederica Road and St. Agnes Street was closed for approximately two hours as the meth lab was safely dismantled and removed from the home.
