Three arrested on meth charges in Flatwoods, Ky.
FLATWOODS, Ky. -- Three people were arrested Saturday after authorities said they found a meth lab inside a home with a child.
Officers responded to a 911 hang-up call at 7:31 a.m. at a home on E.C. Drive in Flatwoods, according to a news release from Greenup County Sheriff Keith M. Cooper.
Officers located several items used for the manufacturing of methamphetamine inside the home as well as in several different locations throughout the property. A 3-year-old child also was located inside the residence within feet of where meth had been produced just hours earlier.
The child's parents, Gary Tackett, 37, and Jodi Tackett, 36, as well as the child's aunt Jessica Anders, 37, all were arrested. They've been charged with manufacturing meth and wanton endangerment. Officers from the Flatwoods, Russell and Worthington police departments assisted Greenup County deputies with the arrests and investigation.
Cooper said the sheriff's department has a no-tolerance policy when it comes to manufacturing meth and trafficking illegal narcotics, especially in the presence of children.
Anyone who has information regarding criminal activity in Greenup County is urged to call the sheriff's department at 606-473-7037 or 606-473-1411. Callers can remain anonymous.
