3 Paducahans, 1 Graves man arrested after meth labs found

Staff report

Four people face methamphetamine-related charges after a McCracken County Sheriff's Department investigation.

According to a news release Friday, deputies stopped Lisa Andrews, 45, of Paducah on Thursday afternoon. Andrews had a warrant outstanding in Livingston County, but as deputies pulled her over they say they saw passenger Kimberly Downs, 33, of Paducah, attempting to hide something. Downs was found to have meth, marijuana, digital scales and drug paraphernalia. A search of Andrews' purse yielded marijuana and prescription drugs, police said.

Andrews, Downs, and another passenger, David Bailey, 33, of Hickory were arrested.

That night, detectives searched the Herzog Lane home where Downs was staying. Inside, they found numerous meth labs, along with a police scanner, scales, cash, drug paraphernalia and meth. Thomas Campbell, 43, of Paducah was arrested at the home. Detectives say they believe Downs was making meth and the others were buying precursors or items needed to make meth.

All four were jailed.

Downs was charged with manufacturing meth, trafficking in meth, possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Andrews faces charges of unlawful distribution of a meth precursor, possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Bailey was charged with unlawful distribution of a meth precursor.

Campbell faces charges of complicity to manufacturing meth, possession of a police scanner and unlawful distribution of a meth precursor.
