Two arrested for meth

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — Detective Jason Back arrested two men on drug charges on Thursday at 10:30 a.m. following an investigation conducted by the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office.  

Ernest L. Goforth, 41, of Walnut Road, Lily, was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, first offense; and first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense (methamphetamine).  Goforth allegedly transferred about 1 gram of methamphetamine to a third party.

Brian G. Harris, 31, was charged with possession of a controlled substance, first offense (methamphetamine). Harris was found to be in possession of about 1 gram of methamphetamine.

Both were lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.

Deputies discovered four inactive one-step meth labs, two HCL generators, digital scales, plastic bags, and an empty box that had contained pseudoephedrine at a residence on Walnut Road, seven miles south of London. A check through the pseudoephedrine log showed that it had been purchased  on that same day.

Assisting in the arrests were Detective Brad Mitchell, Chief Deputy Eddy Sizemore, Lt. Rodney Van Zant, Sgt. Chuck Johnson, and Deputy John Inman.
