Detectives with the F.A.D.E Task Force and the Flatwoods Police Department responded to a large meth lab operation in Flatwoods, Ky, on Monday.
Police arrested Shan C. Parker, Ronnie M. Rowe, and Kristina R. Bates, and charged them with operating a meth lab.
Police discovered a one-step method meth lab in the kitchen sink as soon as they entered a residence on 2413 Marsha Drive, according to a news release from the F.A.D.E. Task Force. Police then pulled everyone from the building and brought in a special unit from the Kentucky State Police to search the home and dismantle the labs. Police found 14 gas generators and 11 one-step meth labs in different rooms of the house.
One official stated that is was the largest meth lab operation he had seen in Kentucky in quite some time, the release said.
