PRESTONSBURG, Ky.(WYMT)- Four people in Floyd County are behind bars accused of running a meth lab.

Police say they got a report of a strong odor coming from an apartment in the Green Acres complex in Prestonsburg. When they searched it they say they found Harry McCoy, Douglas Blackburn, Ronald Wicker, and Laura Tackett with meth precursors and several narcotics

They briefly closed off the apartment to decontaminate it. Police say no nearby apartments are in danger.

"There's just no good way of getting it all cleaned out, but this has definitely been an ongoing operation. I'm just glad we found it," said Assistant Police Chief Bryan Hall.

All four are being charged with possesion of meth and possession of meth precursors.

I'm confused..... Did they find it due to the phone call about the strong Odor , or "The on-going investigation"? And then they comment "we are just glad we found it".

So.... I'm confused

if it was a ongoing meth lab then either the neighbors were in on it, were paid not to say anything, or their noses do not work but its just my opinion

I don't think It would be to safe to allow an investigation to go on for a long time if it involves a meth lab.To close to a school & other residents it could of blown up while they did there ongoing investigation.All it takes is accusation's to have the police search your home so why wasn't that done instead of "an ongoing investigation" that could of endangered people lives.

Either they were tipped off by the call & immediately busted them & unite wants to take credit saying they've known about it all along.Or had a supposed lengthy investigation that endangered everyone around that area.Either way I'm glad they got some meth off the streets.

with all the people that live close together and people that work there weird that they call it an ongoing operation. Looks like you wouldn't be able to get by with stuff like that..but then again it's untelling...Glad they got it off the streets..
