Date of News Release: 12/05/2013
(Georgetown, KY) - On December 04, 2013, Kentucky State Police arrested a Scott County resident for renting a residence where methamphetamine had been manufactured without properly informing the rentors of the danger.

According to the Kentucky Revised Statutes, "any person who leases, rents or sells property that has been determined to be contaminated," must give written notice to warn them of the danger. Property owners are also required to contact the health department to oversee the proper clean up of such properties.
Dillion was charged with the Lease/Rent/ Sale of Contaminated Meth Property Without Written Notice and lodged in the Scott County Jail.
The investigation is continuing by the Kentucky State Police Frankfort Post.
