Four were arrested Thursday at about 12:32 a.m. in a traffic stop on KY 3041 inside the Corbin city limits.

Kentucky State Trooper Tony Dingess was doing a traffic stop.

During the stop, Dingess reportedly found a strong chemical smell from inside the vehicle.

He found an active meth lab, finished meth product, prescription drugs and drug paraphernalia.

Four people in the vehicle were taken to the Whitley County Detention Center charged with first-degree making meth, and first-degree and second-degree possession of a controlled substance.

Arrested were Barry W. Welborn, 31, and Lori N. Welborn, 32, both of Corbin, and John C. Jones, 37, and Barbara S. Leake, 41, both of London.
