A Georgetown landlord allegedly rented a house without telling the new occupants that methamphetamine had been made there, Kentucky State Police said.
Troopers said Thursday that they arrested William Dillon, 52, for allegedly allowing new renters in the home on Indian Creek without giving them written notice that the home was contaminated from meth cooking.
The Frankfort state police post is investigating.
State law requires that anyone who rents or sells contaminated property provide renters with a written notice of the risk, according to state police. The law also requires the owner to notify local health officials to oversee cleaning of the property.
