Major Meth Lab Bust in Laurel County

The Laurel County Sheriff’s Department and officers from the county’s Division of Public Safety made a major meth lab bust early Sunday and arrested six people.

Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a complaint of a Possible meth lab at 115 Sweet Hollow Road in Corbin at about 4:15 a.m.

Officers located what they described as “an active meth lab,” finding produced meth inside the residence, as well as a lot of ingredients necessary to make meth.

Laurel County Division of Public Safety Director and several deputy directors spear-headed the bust.

Charges against the six suspects – men and women ranging in age from 23 to 33 - ranged from manufacturing methanphetamine, and possession of a controlled substance to unlawful possession of ingredients used to produce the final product.

    There's real people in Laurel Co. who have real mental illness that are not being treated. There's a big gap from the court house to mental health agencies and vise versa. These people with mental illness i.e. Bipolar Disorder and Schizophrenia are daily exploited by pure cut throat thugs. They use them for their "fall guys," sexual pleasures, crimes ect. ect. These thugs drive new vehicles, wear the best clothes, and live the good lives . Meanwhile, these mentally ill people are fed enough dope to keep them under their control and away from their families. They get the criminal charges not the thugs behind the meth labs. This has went on for years, the authorities know the truth but don't care enough or don't have the guts to stand up and do the right thing. But as the old saying goes"what goes around comes around". Many of these officials in Laurel County will eventually suffer through their children and grandchildren AS MORE AND MORE OF THEM ARE USING THE METH! Wait and see.

    I am a recovering meth addict and people do not understand this is a disease. Meth is detroying people's lives. I personely think drug court has been a wonderful thing because it can help people recover from this terrible addiction. I think this county needs to get some more youth programs to occupy our teens time and even if it keeps one off of drugs it would be worth while.

    Why does it seem that every time the news reports a meth lab bust, it's in Laurel County? When will the justice system wise up and start making harsher punishments for these losers?
