Times-Tribune Staff Report
The odor of what might have been methamphetamine cooking took London police officers to a home on Nazareth Hill in the early morning hours Wednesday.
Sgt. Gary Proffitt noticed the odor and he and other officers started a search, said Lt. Stewart Walker.
It was followed to a home there.
The officers made contacts with the occupants in the home and a search led to two active one-step labs, a hydro-chorine generator, pills and a substance thought to be meth, Walker said.
Arrested were Paul Depew and Bobbie Collett, of London and Timothy Sizemore of Manchester.
Each was charged with making meth, two counts of first-degree possession of a controlled substance, possessing drug paraphernalia and a prescription controlled substance not in its original container.
They were taken to the Laurel County jail.
Officers also involved were LPD Sgt. Travis Dotson, Officers Travis Couch and Doug Thomas, Sheriff’s Deputies Darrell Zanet and Rob Mitchell and Kentucky State Police Sgt. Steve Walker.
The investigation continues, said Lt. Walker.
