(Beaver Dam, KY) The Ohio County Sheriff's Department responded to a disturbance and drug complaint at a residence in the Cromwell community on Tuesday night. Upon arriving, deputies discovered two juveniles home alone. The two youths stated that there had been a fight at the home and that everyone involved in the altercation had left the residence.
While still on the scene, Lori Miller returned to her home and told deputies about the fight and complained that her door had been damaged in the scuffle. As Miller opened her door, deputies detected a strong odor often associated with the manufacture of methamphetamine.
Police then searched the residence and discovered what they believe to be the largest meth lab ever uncovered in Ohio County. Also found in the residence were marijuana, drug paraphernalia, methamphetamine, and prescription pills.
Miller was booked into the Ohio County Detention Center on multiple drug-related charges.
In a related incident, on Thursday at 12:30 a.m. Ohio County deputies went to the 1400 block of Scott Town Road to interview 36-year old Crystal Embry of Beaver Dam about the alleged assault which took place at Miller's residence on Tuesday. While police were at the home they again discovered products commonly used in the manufacture of meth, including lithium batteries, pseudoephedrine, starting fluid, and Coleman fuel, among other items.
Embry was arrested and lodged in the Ohio County Detention Center on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance (meth), unlawful possession of a meth precurso, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
