Aug. 07, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

WESTWOOD, Ky. -- Two people were arrested Monday evening on meth-related charges, according to the Boyd County Sheriff's Department.

Deputies received a call of a possible active meth lab in the 300 block of Wheatly Road about 7:45 p.m.

Deputies arrested Jeffery Geiger, 36, and Teresa L. Jordan, 51, both of the 300 block of Wheatly Road, Ashland. They were charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, unlawful possession of meth precursors and possession of a controlled substance, according to the release.

Another man in the residence ran out the back door and wasn't immediately arrested, according to the release.

Deputies found several meth clandestine labs, finished meth product and precursors to the manufacture of meth, according to the release.

Kentucky State Police were called to clean up the meth labs.

Both Jordan and Geiger were taken to King's Daughters Medical Center in Ashland for decontamination before being taken to the Boyd County Detention Center in Catlettsburg. The first two sheriff's deputies on the scene also were taken to the hospital for decontamination before being released.

More arrests are pending and the case remains under investigation.
