Three are behind bars as the war against methamphetamine-production continues in the state of Kentucky.
Somerset Police swarmed a home at the intersection of Woods Ave and Tennessee Avenue early Sunday morning.
They removed drug-making paraphernalia from the house and the back shed throughout the morning.
The discovery came as a surprise for police, who were originally at the home because someone inside said they were being threatened.
"When they arrived to investigate, officers found at this residence the tools to produce methamphetamine," said Somerset Police Detective Chris Gates.
A couple had been leasing the home for less than a year, according to a friend of the landlord.
They were taken off in the back of a police car, charged with making and possessing meth.
"It takes very little to make it, but the profits of selling it is tremendous," said Detective Gates.
Somerset Police say meth labs have become 'a plague' on the community.
