Sheriff forms meth lab response team

The Laurel County Sheriff's Office has now formed a methamphetamine lab response team. Its focus will be dismantling labs and prosecuting people who cook meth.

Sheriff John Root says the new group will help speed up the office's response time to ensure people get prosecuted, and that labs get cleaned up safely.

Sheriff Root says his staff busted close to 400 meth labs last year.
