The Laurel County Sheriff's Department found 110 one-step meth labs Tuesday afternoon and 54 generators, making it the largest meth seizure in the county to date.

The items were discovered after investigators searched a home at 239 Rader Ridge Road, about three miles north of London, according to the sheriff's department. Deputies found the labs and generators on the property and adjacent to the property.

Jasper McQueen, 49, was charged with manufacturing meth. His wife, Winifred McQueen, 47, was charged with manufacturing meth and first-degree possession of a controlled substance, the sheriff's department said. The McQueens were being held Wednesday at the Laurel County jail. Both Jasper and Winifred McQueen had bonds set at $25,000 full cash.
