      CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- More details, including the identity of the man arrested, has been released in the case of the meth lab found on top of a College of Charleston dorm.

      According to an affidavit, 25-year-old Justin Allan Paulus was charged with making meth after items used in manufacturing the drug were found on the roof of 55 George Street.

      The report says Paulus was also found on the roof with matches, syringes and a spoon that tested positive for meth. Investigators also found his sleeping bag and a guitar case and obtained video of Paulus purchasing one of the meth-making ingredients at a local CVS.

      Mike Robertson, Senior Director of Media Relations for CofC, said that Paulus was never a student enrolled at the college.

      Tim Keane, director of planning for the City of Charleston, had said the city's Board of Architectural Review was looking into the possibility of putting up a fence to block access to the roof of the building from the top of the adjacent parking garage.

      Robertson said they have not yet heard from BAR officials on their decision.
