Three people are behind bars after a Meth lab bust in Laurel County.

"I'm not surprised one bit," said a man who lives near a camper where police have found two active meth labs. He didn't want to go on camera, but says he's been suspicious of activity in the area for a while.

"There's always something going on down there," he said.

Kentucky State Police say just after 11 Saturday night, they responded to a report of a Meth lab in a camper outside of a home on US 25 Sth in Laurel County.

When they went inside, police say they discovered two active Meth labs, with about 4 to 5 grams of Methamphetamine, several items used to produce Meth, Marijuana,and prescription medicine.

"It's a big mess that needs to be cleaned up," the neighbor said.

Police arrested three people who were inside the camper: 26 year-old Brian Bernardo, 25 year-old Stacie Bernardo, and 24 year-old Melissa Mink.

They are charged with manufacturing Methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of marijuana.

The three arrested are being held at the Laurel County Detention Center.
