Teenager Arrested For Making Meth

An unusual tip leads Bullitt County investigators to a working meth lab where they found one of the youngest suspects they've ever encountered.

Police say a grocery store security guard called them to report some unusual purchases being made by a couple of men. Investigators say one of the items the men bought was an ingredient used to make meth.

When police followed the men home, they say they found a meth lab and a 15-year-old boy helping make the drug.

Police arrested 21-year-old Derrick Geralds on several charges, including manufacturing meth. They've also charged the 15-year-old.
