Five arrested in Laurel meth bust

Four adults, one minor taken into custody after raid by sheriff’s department

CORBIN — By Carl Keith Greene/Staff Writer

Four adults and a minor were arrested Wednesday by the Laurel County sheriff’s department in a methamphetamine raid.

Perry Waddle, 46, and Ellalynn Eversole, 24, both of Hawk Creek Road, Christopher Allen, 31, of Fisherman Island Road and Lesley Hubbard, 36, of Les Hubbard Road were taken to the Laurel County jail.

An underage male was taken to the Breathitt County juvenile detention center, said Sheriff Fred Yaden.

Responding to a tip by a local citizen, Yaden and deputies arrived at the Les Hubbard Road site about 11 a.m. Yaden said.

According to the tip, it was possible that a meth lab was at the home west of London.

Once Yaden’s men got permission from the home owner to search the house they found four active one-step meth labs along with components used in its production.

Also in the home was some completed meth, Yaden said.

Yaden said the five were arrested at the scene with no incidents.

Allen was charged with making meth; Eversole with making meth, possessing a controlled substance and falsely reporting an incident; Hubbard, making meth and failure to appear on an earlier warrant, required to serve 179 days on that charge and Waddle was charged with making meth.

Allen, Hubbard and Waddle were held on $25,000 bonds while Eversole was held on a $100,000 bond.

Deputy Detective Brad Mitchell, deputies Jason Back, James Sizemore, Ernest Rudder and Chief Deputy Junior McKnight assisted Yaden in the arrests.

Albert Hale and Brad Smith of the County Division of Public Safety removed the material from the home.
