Corbin police find active meth lab in car, two arrested

Two Corbin residents were arrested Sunday after police found a functional methamphetamine lab in their car, according to Corbin Police Public Affairs Officer Major Rob Jones.

Barry Welborn, 31, and Lori Welborn, 32, were arrested after police were called about them arguing while in the McDonalds drive-thru in south Corbin. A second call to police reported that the fight had become physical and that the man was hitting and choking the woman.

Police stopped the car under the I-75 overpass. They found the active meth lab as well as about three grams of the finished drug.

Both the Welborns were jailed in the Whitley County Detention Center. They are charged with manufacturing methamphetamine.

Kentucky State Police (DESI East Division) responded and dismantled the lab. Assisting officers were Jones and Detective Rusty Hedrick.

K-9 Officer Steve Meadors continues the investigation.
