Meth lab allegations bring arrests

Staff report

Five Paducah residents face charges following a methamphetamine manufacturing investigation by two sheriff's departments, according to the McCracken County Sheriff's Department.

Police said McCracken County along with the Marshall County Sheriff's Department found multiple meth laboratories about 3:30 p.m. Monday while looking for suspects as part of an investigation at the Country Aire Mobile Home Park on Clark's River Road.

Several meth labs, one actively releasing gases, and other items used in manufacturing the drug were found in one mobile home. The three residents, Connie Wallace, 51, Joseph Scott, 41, and Colleen Dunn, 33, face charges of manufacturing meth. Scott also faces a charge of unlawful possession of a meth precursor, according to a news release from the McCracken County Sheriff's Department.

Police said Casey Jones, 47, a resident elsewhere in the mobile home park, faces a charge of unlawful distribution of a meth precursor. Jones is accused of purchasing Sudafed, assisting in the purchase of other items to manufacture meth and transferring those items to others.

George West, 40, of Paducah was arrested on a warrant for a probation violation.

All five were jailed. Police said more charges and arrests are possible.
