Two Grayson County residents were arrested Saturday night, June 16, on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance, tampering with physical evidence, possession of marijuana, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
John Henry Embrey, 37, and Peggy Lynn Embrey, 38, both of Caneyville, were arrested just after 10 p.m. by Trooper Daniel Leonard, of the Kentucky State Police and were both lodged in the Grayson County Detention Center.
Leonard was assisted by Deputy Buck Meredith of the Grayson County Sheriff’s Department, who accompanied him to 3468 Yeaman Road, in Caneyville, to follow up on an anonymous tip that the drug known as meth was possibly being manufactured at that address.
According to a press release from Norman Chaffins, of KSP, the responding officers noted “several items outside of the residence that were consistent with items used in the manufacturing of methamphetamines.”
A search warrant was obtained based on the evidence found at the scene, and a subsequent search of the property revealed two “one-step” meth labs.
One lab was located inside the residence in a garbage can, while the other was an incomplete lab found outside of the residence in a separate building.
Also discovered by the officers were two grams of methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
The location was decontaminated by the Greater Hardin County Narcotics Task Force, and an ongoing investigation into the incident is being headed by Leonard.
