Another meth lab seized
In Aug. 26 Issue

Deputy Nick Bertram said it is likely the most open-and-shut drug bust he has made. Bertram said he noticed a two-liter bottle containing drug residue next to the house when he pulled up in the drive, then with permission he found needles, what tested as actual methamphetamine as well as chemicals for making meth and working meth-production inside the home.

Two people were arrested at the home on Old Columbia Road at the intersection of G.V. Hale Road just outside of Russell Springs Monday evening on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine and child endangerment.

Russell County Sheriff Larry Bennett said that deputies discovered the meth lab around 5:30 Monday evening.  

Bennett said that Michelle Corbin, 31 and Jeff Bryant, 27, were both charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and controlled substance endangerment of a Child. Corbin was also charged with cultivating marijuana.

Bertram said that the Russell Springs Fire Department was called to the scene and set up a special tent to decontaminate the 9-year-old child in the home before she was taken to the hospital to be treated for exposure to the hazardous chemicals used in making the deadly drug.

“Social Services took care of the little girl,” Bertram said. “I think she was released to some family members later.”

The deputy said that all the stages of production were located in or around the home, from the starting chemicals, through the production steps, to the finished product.

Bertram said he’d originally gone to the home to investigate theft allegations, and added that evidence relating to other crimes was located at the home.

The same home had been raided less than a month previous and evidence from thefts in Adair County was collected.

Corbin and Bryant were lodged in the Russell County Jail.  The Sheriff says additional arrests are possible as the investigation continues by Deputies Nick Bertram, Clete McAninch and Mark Cromwell.  Assisting at the scene last evening were members of a State Police Hazardous Materials team and the Russell Springs Fire Department.
