Police Find Active Meth Lab Inside Clay County Home

Kentucky State Police say four people could face charges after finding an active meth lab inside a Clay County home.

The investigation shut down Highway 421 in Big Creek for several hours Wednesday night as a precaution.

An anonymous tip brought investigators to the mobile home around midnight.

Once inside, police say they found items used to make meth and called in a haz-mat team.

Police say the odor from the cooking process was overpowering.

“It was unbearable. We had to get everyone out of the residence. I wouldn't stay in there any longer than I had to,” says Jeff Senters of Kentucky State Police.

Police say they need to complete the investigation and interview the suspects before releasing their names or possible charges.

    I say just stop the sale of the stuff that people need to make meth take it off the shelf all of it, or put it in a special store rite on the town square in plain view with cameras and each customer have to sigh for it not only in Kentucky but any part of the United States where this is a problem make it harder for people buy any thing to make meth.

    Looks like clay county is trying to become no1 in the meth market.2 labs in 2 days is a good start.

    No, it doesn't seem to have even slowed them down. Just made it harder on the rest of us. It always does. Just once I would like to see some type of action taken that really made a difference without hurting the law-abiding citizen.

    The police are too insensitive to the need to get trafcfic going.Almost always They are TERRIBLE for not working traffic in a professional matter.

    And this trash is the reason that we law-abiding citizens have to be scrutinized every time we need a simple box of over the counter allergy medicine. Doesn't look like it's stopped the criminals from doing what they're doing.
