Police say a domestic assault investigation led them to discover a meth lab inside a home in Nicholasville.
Nicholasville Police and Kentucky State Police dismantled the meth lab Saturday night at a home on North First Street.
The man who lives there, Michael A. Richardson, was charged with Manufacturing Meth after the discovery.
Police say they were originally called to the home for a domestic assault complaint. That's when they took Richardson into custody. He was charged with Fourth Degree Assault at that time.
Police say when an officer returned later to speak with the victim, he discovered the meth lab.
Police say the officer saw an Igloo cooler, which contained items needed to make meth.
Police say the lab had recently been used and still had some reside inside the cooler from the production of meth.
Police say they cleaned the home to make it safe for the people who live there to return.
Nicholasville Police are still investigating the case, and they say more charges are expected.
