Police arrested a Boyle County man and took a child into protective custody after finding a methamphetamine lab Wednesday night.
Sheriff Marty Elliott said Roy Hines, 48, of Danville was arrested late Wednesday at the home he rents at 2207 Wells Landing Road.
Elliott said a small quantity of meth was found inside the residence.
Further investigation led authorities to a building behind the residence where they located five generators, which are used to soak pills and remove meth precursors, and a working lab.
Elliott said Hines’ infant daughter, who was inside the home at the time of his arrest, was taken into protective custody.
Elliott said Hines may not be the only person involved with the operation and more arrests are possible.
State police are assisting the sheriff’s department in the investigation.
Hines was taken to the Boyle County Detention Center where he faces charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, trafficking in methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and multiple drug possession charges.
