Four arrested on meth charges in Boyd County

BOYD COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT/WSAZ) - Four Carter County, Ky., residents were arrested late Tuesday night on meth-related charges along U.S. 60 near a motel in Cannonsburg, Boyd County Sheriff's deputies say.

Four meth labs were found in a vehicle that left the Walmart in Cannonsburg and pulled into the parking lot of a nearby motel. The vehicle had no tags on it, and deputies pulled the driver over. They observed meth-making materials and smoke coming out of a soft drink bottle inside the car.

Adrienne Smith, 28, of Grayson, Ky., and Joseph Johnson, 22, Jason Lewis, 30, and April Swanigan, 23, all of Olive Hill, Ky., are all charged with manufacturing meth and unlawful possession of meth precursor. Smith also was charged with carrying a concealed deadly weapon, and Swanigan has a warrant out for a previous meth charge.

Boyd County Sheriff's deputies continue to investigate. They remained at the scene processing evidence early Wednesday morning.

Deputies say the arrests resulted from multiple complaints by people in the area who reported seeing suspects coming in and out of Walmart multiple times with meth-making materials and getting into the same vehicle.
