The Randolph County Sheriff's Department has arrested an Elkins woman and charged her with possession of precursors to manufacture meth.

Deputies were notified by Wal-Mart Asset Protection that Julie Ann Johnson, 35, had shoplifted lithium batteries, according to a criminal complaint. Deputies later discovered that Johnson had purchased airline tubing and Coleman Fuel earlier that day.

Upon receiving a search warrant for Johnson's home, deputies found drug paraphernalia, various items known for making meth including ice compress packs, hydrogen peroxide, a butane torch, coffee filters, and instructions detailing how to make meth.

Johnson is being held in Tygart Valley Regional Jail with bail set at $75,000.
