COVINGTON, Ky. - Multiple agencies in Northern Kentucky worked Sunday to remove a likely methamphetamine lab from a Covington residence.
The “possible active” meth lab was discovered at 4566 Amber Dr. at 3:36 p.m. when Covington police responded to the address to assist the Cabinet for Family and Children with an investigation, according to a press release from the Covington Police Department.
The Covington Fire Department, Kenton County Emergency Management and the Northern Kentucky Drug Strike Force were requested to assist due to potential hazards stemming from the chemicals at the site.
One person was arrested at the scene. Police say additional charges will be filed against a suspect who was not present at the time of the investigation.
The NKDSF is handling the cleanup and the investigation.
