An elderly woman was forced out of her home early Thursday morning when police found meth cooking inside.

Police answered an anonymous tip around 2:30am of a man armed with a gun roaming through a Hyden neighborhood.

The investigation led police to the home of Hallie Hensley, who lives with her daughter and grandson.

There they found one active meth lab and materials to make meth.

Both her daughter and grandson were arrested along with another man and woman.

But even with drugs allegedly in the next room, Hensley said she had no idea what was going on.

"I just told them the truth. I didn't know this stuff, this crazy jumpy stuff was going on, God have mercy. If anybody hated drugs as bad as I did I guess they know I hate them now." Hensley told Mountain News.

The Leslie County sheriff's office has not released the names of those arrested.
