Three men were arrested late Thursday at a home in Russell Springs and charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, according to Police Chief Joseph M. Irvin.
According to the police report, officers with both the Russell Springs Police Department and Russell County Sheriff's Office responded to a home on Womack St., just off of Dowell Rd., after receiving a complaint of illegal drug activity at the residence.
Upon arriving at the residence officers identified a strong chemical odor noticed in active meth labs and witnessed those inside the home begin to run through the home as if they were trying to dispose of the alleged substances or leave the home.
Once all of the suspects were in custody authorities, with consent, searched the trailer and found finished methamphetamine, scales and other paraphernalia and precursors used in the manufacturing process.
Arrested at the scene were Darren Neat, 42, of Russell Springs, Devin Pevely, 27, of Dunnville and Dustin Pevely, 24, of Windsor.
All three were charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and were lodged in the Russell County Detention Center.
Officers involved included arresting officer Matthew Parrish, Irvin, Chasity Shirley, Melissa Taylor, Nathan Bradshaw, and Deputies Lee Smith and Kenny Brown from the sheriff’s office.
