A husband and wife are behind bars after police say they found 164 meth labs at their Laurel County home.

Sheriff's deputies say this is the largest meth lab bust ever in the county ...and one of the largest in the state.

Police arrested Jasper and Winifred McQueen on several drug related charges.

About a dozen dogs walk around the home of what police call a toxic waste dump.
Sheriff deputies acted on a tip and found a very dangerous situation... just a few miles north of London.
Police found no children in the home.

The McQueen's are facing several drug related charges.

Earlier this month, officers found a home with 90 meth labs...they say they will continue to make the war on drugs a priority.

"We are really focusing in on the problem and finding it daily... we will continue to do that throughout this year," said John Root, Laurel County Sheriff.

Police say it will take several days to clean the home...with the weather permitting.
