CHESTER - Two additional suspects have been added to the list of arrests Chester police have made in connection with a March 17 meth bust.

Laura Lailer, 44, and Emily Albaugh, 30, both of Chester, have been charged with aggravated participation in methamphetamine production, a Class X felony, according to the Chester Police Department.

A total of six people have been arrested in connection with the March 17 raid at the home of 46-year-old Virgil "Wayne" Chambers, where authorities report seizing more than 1600 grams of substances containing methamphetamine.

Chambers is being held in the Randolph County Jail on $200,000 bond.  Three other people - David Roche, Amber Verville and Cathy Peeler - were also arrested in the incident.  Peeler is the only suspect to post bail, police said.

More arrests could be coming as the investigation continues, said Bobby Helmers, deputy chief of the Chester Police Department.
