Posted: Updated:
MARSHALL COUNTY, KY -

Three people were arrested over the weekend after detectives found an active methamphetamine lab in Marshall County.

The Marshall County Sheriff's Office says the meth lab was at a home on Starks Cemetery Lane in Hardin.

42-year-old Christy Hiett, 38-year-old Ty Howard, and 62-year-old Jeffrey Coblentz, all of Hardin, were arrested.

Hiett and Howard were both charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of marijuana.

Coblentz was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, and tampering with physical evidence.

Detectives say the tampering with physical evidence charge is the result of Coblentz trying to destroy/hide a plate containing meth from officers when they got to the home.

All three were taken to the Marshall County Detention Center.

More charges are pending.
