Two people were arrested Saturday after a meth lab was discovered at an Owen County home.
Deputies from the Owen County Sheriff's Department went to a home on Highway 1669 to attempt to serve a warrant at 5:48 p.m. Saturday. When they arrived at the home, deputies smelled a strong chemical odor coming from the residence. A search warrant was obtained and a search of the home led to the discovery of a meth lab.
Corrine Sturgeon, 33, of Wheatley, KY, and Raymond Eastman, 44, also from Wheatley were arrested and charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, trafficking in a controlled substance, possession of a meth precursor, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Both are being held in the Carroll County Detention Center.
