Officials say the meth lab was found in Jamestown Village a little before two Tuesday afternoon.

Kentucky State Police, the Knott County Sheriff's Department, and a Drug Task Force responded to a complaint and found a one-step lab, as well as ingredients to make meth.

Officers believe someone threw those items out of a car window.

Knott County Sheriff Dale Richardson says, "It was in a bag, some ingredients, lithium batteries, some lighter fluid, it had a cold pack. These ingredients are definitely used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine."
