State police say they found an active meth lab inside a truck that led them on a chase early Monday.
A trooper in Rockcastle County had tried to stop the Toyota truck, which was southbound on U.S. 25, at 12:20 a.m. because it had only one headlight, according to a press release.
The driver did not pull over, and after 10-mile pursuit into Laurel County, a tire deflation device stopped the truck. It was then that the meth lab was found.
Ford Wagers, 24, of London, and Frankie Powell, 29, of Brodhead, were charged with fleeing and evading police, unlawful possession of meth precursors and several traffic offenses. They were taken to the Rockcastle County Detention Center.
