Two Arrested at Carroll County Meth Lab
Date of News Release: 06/11/2014
(Carrollton, KY) - Two people were arrested last night (6/10) after Troopers found a meth lab in a home at 205 Highway 36 West. Troopers from KSP Post 5 went to the home of Ricky Shelton, 56 years old from Carrollton, KY, after obtaining information that he and Dana Harmon, 49 years old from Louisville, KY, were possibly manufacturing methamphetamine at the residence. Troopers learned that Harmon had an outstanding warrant for probation violation and contacted Probation and Parole. After Probation and Parole arrived, a search of the home was conducted. Troopers located a meth lab and several ingredients used in manufacturing methamphetamine in the garage. Shelton and Harmon were both charged with Manufacturing Methamphetamine, Trafficking in a Controlled Substance, Possession of a Controlled Substance, and Unlawful Possession of a Meth Precursor. Additionally, Harmon was served with two warrants for probation violation. Both were lodged at the Carroll County Detention Center. Two children that were located in the home were released to family members.
Trooper Brodie Jodry is leading the ongoing investigation.
