LOUISA, Ky. (WSAZ) — A search for stolen guns turns up a “shake and bake” meth lab.
The Lawrence County, Ky. Sheriff says that on Saturday, a deputy responded to a call about the location of guns that were reportedly stolen from a residence in Fallsburg back in March.
When the deputy arrived at the location on Spankem Branch Road, the victim of the theft said he believed Robert Caudill had been trying to sell the guns, according to the sheriff. After speaking to Mr. Caudill, the deputy obtained a search warrant for the property.
During the search, the deputy said he found an active “shake and bake” Methamphetamine lab in the trunk of a vehicle. He also found several items used to manufacture meth along with some drug paraphernalia.
Robert D. Caudill, 32, and Rhonda J. Cornette, both of Louisa, were arrested and charged with manufacturing Methamphetamine.
Following their arrests, the pair was taken to Paul B. Hall Medical Center to be decontaminated before being taken to the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center.
Caudill was also served with a fugitive bench warrant from Boyd County.
No guns were found on the property.
