Comments Off on Second arrest made in McCracken Co. meth lab investigation

MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky. – A second person is now behind bars after an investigation of 30 meth labs in a McCracken County home.

Detectives arrested 32-year-old Buffy Timmons after learning that she assisted Chuck Lyons by purchasing items for use in manufacturing methamphetamine.


Lyons and Timmons’ three children were also inside the house. The kids range in age from 6 to 11 years old.

Police originally arrested Lyons yesterday after responding to a domestic call. That was when they discovered 30 meth labs in the home along with the children.

Timmons was charged with one count each of Complicity to Manufacturing Methamphetamine and Unlawful Distribution of a Meth Precursor, as well as three counts of Controlled Substance Endangerment to Child 4th Degree. Lyons was also subsequently charged with three county of Controlled Substance Endangerment to Child 4th Degree.

Earlier story:

What started as a domestic call Wednesday night, ended up uncovering a suspected meth operation.

Neighbors first alerted social services to problems at a home in the 1300 block of Yarbro Lane in McCraken County. Soon deputies were called to get a woman and three children living inside to safety.

Investigators say they arrested a man in the house, Chuck Lyons, and a total of 30 methamphetamine labs were located. Numerous items that were used and prepared to be used in the manufacturing of meth were also located and seized.

“It’s upsetting that this could be occurring right in the heart of this community,” said McCracken County Sheriff Jon Hayden.

Lyons was arrested on 25 counts of meth-manufacturing charges and booked into the McCraken County Jail, investigators say more charges could follow.

The drug task force was called in to clean up the chemical residue.
