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.

    Penny Not all Clay Countians are that way, if you remember there has been a lot of things just as bad in London.
