East Knox County Meth Lab Arrest
One man is in custody after officers with the Knox County Sheriff’s Office discovered components of a meth lab in East Knox County on Sunday afternoon. KCSO officers were dispatched to 6518 Babelay Road around noon on a domestic welfare check when they discovered what they believed to be components of a meth lab. Officers evacuated everyone from the trailer and notified the KCSO Narcotics Unit, who responded and found evidence of multiple previous meth cooking sites, or “meth cooks.”
44-year-old Ricky Lewis was arrested without incident and charged with initiation and the process of methamphetamine, and promotion and manufacture of methamphetamine.
