Two from Laurel arrested for making meth

Two people were arrested Wednesday after deputies were told they were in a store buying items needed to make methamphetamine, according to Laurel County Sheriff John Root.

Rickie E. Eubanks, 35, of Keavy, and Marissa N. McConnell, 20, of London, were arrested after deputies Greg Turner and John Inman responded about 7 a.m. to the complaint at a store located 10 miles south of London.

The deputies were told Eubanks and McConnell left the store in a black Lincoln. A short time later, the deputies found the Lincoln in the parking lot of a motel located along Hwy. 770. They also found items used to manufacture meth as well as burned spoons and used needles.

Eubanks was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and first degree persistent felony offender, since he has three prior felony convictions. He was also charged with traffic violations.

McConnell was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Both Eubanks and McConnell were jailed in the Laurel County Correctional Center.

Detective Jason Back continues his drug investigation regarding the two suspects.
