Kentucky State Police found three meth labs in Laurel County over the weekend, arresting five people on meth manufacturing charges and three others on unrelated charges.
Kentucky State Police Trooper First Class Don Trosper said troopers Christopher Roberts and Michael King went to Cornett Subdivision off of Maple Grove School Road Saturday to serve an arrest warrant. They found two active methamphetamine labs.
Ronnie Lockaby, 30 of London, Randy Collier, 45 of London, Whitney Goodin, 19 of London and Stephanie Walters, 28, of London, were each charged with first-degree manufacturing methamphetamine.
“Because of the meth labs, the trailer has been condemned,” Trosper said.
Joshua Hess, 23 of Fariston was charged with second-degree fleeing or evading police and giving an officer a false name or address. Daniel Leddington, 24 and Geneva Leddington, 22, both of Fariston were both arrested on bench warrants.
Trosper said troopers found another methamphetamine lab Sunday on U.S. 25 in Lily, and arrested James A. Cawood, 26 of London. Cawood was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and second-degree possession of a controlled substance.
