SADIEVILLE, Ky. (WKYT) Two people have been arrested following Wednesday's discovery of a meth lab inside a home on Indian Creek Road, according to the Kentucky State Police.

Seven adults were reportedly at the home when the meth lab was found. No children were present.

William Dillion and Michael Gibson are both facing meth making-related charges for what police found in this Indian Creek Road home early this morning.

The Scott County Sheriff's Office got a search warrant for the home, working off of several leads that meth might be back in the home.

Deputies we spoke with afterward told us they've been to the home three to four times in recent months, and taken either Dillion, or Gibson, or both into custody before on meth charges.
During this most recent incident, Gibson tried to run, and at one point, threw an active one-step meth lab toward a deputy while trying to get away.

'We believe that he was throwing it to get rid of the evidence.
The reason they're dangerous is they catch on fire and explode," said Kentucky State Police Trooper Christopher Martin.

So now Michael Gibson and William Dillion are back at the Scott County jail on meth-related charges. The question for law enforcement officials that are having to make repeat trips out to that home, is for how long?

"It is frustrating, but it's part of the job," said Martin. He continued, "It's in the court's hands. We have to wait for due process."

Several other people were inside the home when police arrived, but officials on scene said they weren't facing any charges.
