Meth lab discovery at Kentucky home leads to five arrests

CARROLLTON, Ky. -- Five people were taken into custody shortly after authorities searched a Carrollton home Monday and discovered a meth lab outside.

Troopers carried out a search warrant at a home in the 700 block of 11th Street, Tpr. Brad Arterburn reported. Along with the meth lab, they found several ingredients used to make the drug.

The five suspects reside in Carrollton, and face different charges in connection with the meth lab find. Three were taken into custody and charged Monday, while two more arrests followed Tuesday.

According to Arterburn, 52-year-old Grant Cobb was charged with three counts of unlawful distribution of meth. Megan O'Connor, 26, faces two separate possession charges and an unlawful distribution charge.

Charged with four counts of unlawful distribution, 45-year-old Elizabeth Puckett was arrested on a warrant for writing cold checks.

The third and fourth arrests took place Tuesday because the two remaining suspects were not at the house when authorities served the warrant.

Jennifer Lainez, 31, was charged with possession. Authorities found 25-year-old Tommy Floyd in Gallatin County (Ky.) and charged him with manufacturing meth and possession of drug paraphernalia. Arterburn said he was making meth at the time of his arrest.

The five suspects were taken to the Carroll County Detention Center. Investigation would be ongoing, with more arrests possible, Arterburn said.
