The meth lab scene contained the components used to produce methamphetamine, including bowls and tools, the department said. A propane burner was found still burning in apparent preparation to produce meth, the department said.
After the investigation by Deputy Sheriff Chris Stratton with assistance from Deputy Sheriff Brian Wofford and Junction City Officer David Prather, Lake was arrested early Wednesday morning and charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, unlawful possession of methamphetamine precursor, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Lake was placed in the Boyle County Detention Center under a $72,000 cash bond, a jail spokesman said. He remained there this morning, the spokesman said.
Meanwhile, Lake was indicted Wednesday on one count of second-degree wanton endangerment, one count of leaving the scene of an accident and three counts of first-degree criminal mischief, the jail spokesman said. The bond for those charges was set at $15,000,.
The indictment was for a hit-and-run on or around Jan. 16, the jail spokesman said.
Assistant Danville Police Chief Tom Bustle said today Lake allegedly deliberately drove his vehicle into a woman's vehicle on the access road that goes by Stuart Powell Ford to Danville Square Shopping Center. The impact caused the woman's vehicle to hit two other cars, Bustle said. Lake allegedly left the scene following the accident.
Bustle said Lake and the woman allegedly had been involved in a dispute of some kind.
