A Rolla man has been charged after authorities discovered an active meth lab on the property of a private residence. 

Officials say Dale Edward Perry Sr., 58, was charged Friday with Possession of a Controlled Substance and Drug Trafficking in the first degree. 

During a search of the property on Thursday, officers say they located the lab along with methamphetamine lab materials and drug paraphernalia.

Perry is being held in the Phelps County Jail on a $250,000 bond.
