A second man wanted by the Laurel County Sheriff’s Department has been arrested.
Tab McGhee, 38, of East Bernstadt, was arrested Saturday and remains jailed at the Laurel County Detention Center under a $10,000 cash bond.
Tab McGhee and a second man, Jeffrey McGhee, 48, were indicted Dec. 21 in Laurel County Circuit Court.
The four-count indictment has both McGhees facing charges stemming from a fight Sept. 30.
Sheriff John Root reported deputies responded to a residence one mile north of London on U.S. 25. There, deputies found two victims, Theron Rider and Jamie Rider, who reportedly complained about the McGhees manufacturing methamphetamines.
Deputies found an active one-step meth lab, and arrested both McGhees.
The first count of December’s indictment charges the two men with manufacturing methamphetamines, first offense.
Count Two indicts Jeffrey McGhee on first-degree wanton endangerment after allegedly attempting to run over one of the victims, Theron Rider, with a truck.
Count Three indicts Jeffrey McGhee on fourth-degree assault by allegedly hitting the second victim, Jamie Rider, with his fists, causing injury.
The fourth count indicts Tab McGhee on fourth-degree assault after allegedly hitting Theron Rider with a flashlight in the back of the head, causing injury.
Both men are scheduled to appear in court Jan. 18.
Others wanted by sheriff’s detectives Jason Back and Brad Mitchell include the following:
— David Lee Clark, facing charges of second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense, and third-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense.
— Brenda Garland, wanted for second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense, and third-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense.
— Johna Gail Gilbert, charged with first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense.
— Erma McGraw, wanted for first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense.
— Gladys Webb, facing charges of second-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, first offense.
