Sheriff's cruiser cam captures meth lab chase

Early Wednesday morning police say they could smell the strong odor of meth coming from a car on Barnesburg Rd, east of Somerset.

The blue lights and siren went on, but the car didn’t stop. A few miles down the road something was thrown out. Police later learned the items were one-step meth labs.

Cruiser cam footage given to 27 NEWSFIRST by the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office shows the chase entering what would usually be a busy intersection, but the car is not seen stopping at the stop sign.

“We estimate they hit the intersection of Ky. 461 and Ky. 80 somewhere around 80 to 85 mph,” said Pulaski Co. Sheriff Todd Wood.

That’s when the car is seen going airborne, and the chase quickly comes to an end. Police arrested the driver, Shelly L. Osenbaugh of Ferguson and her passenger, Roscoe Godby, Jr. of Somerset.

“What concerns us a great deal is that people on the roadways, your family and my family, they could come across individuals like this,” said Sheriff Wood.

Osenbaugh and Godby are facing a bevy of charges including the manufacture of meth. Police also say they found evidence of heroin in the car.
