Police still seeking one suspect after meth lab bust

Investigators have arrested one man and are still searching for another following the discovery of two meth labs early Friday.

It happened on Bondville Road, near Salvisa, in Mercer County.

Police arrested Hobert Riley Jr. after they say they found a meth lab on his property. They say they then found marijuana plants behind Riley's house, mixed in with corn plants.

They say they found a second meth lab in the home of Riley's neighbor, Waylon Brewer.

"I know down in my heart that it needed to be done but I wish it could have gone down in a better way," said a family member of Brewer's.

Riley is charged with manufacturing meth, cultivating marijuana and possesion of marijuana and drug paraphanelia.

Kentucky State Police and the Mercer County Sheriff's Department are investigating.

Police say they were tipped off after neighbors complained about so much traffic along the road.
