A tip from a concerned resident resulted in the discovery of an active methamphetamine lab by Nicholasville police Wednesday afternoon.
The call came in around 4 p.m. when an unnamed man alerted police to the lab outside 122 Lorraine Ave., which is located just off North Central Avenue near Lake Mingo Park.
“Officers responded to the scene, and when they were approaching, there were two guys in a car,” Nicholasville police officer Kevin Grimes said. “And as (the officers) got up to the car, they detected in the passenger’s seat, in between the passenger’s legs, was an active one-step meth lab that was actually working.”
Paul Boyd, 32, and Crystal Boyd, 28, were arrested at the scene and charged with manufacturing methamphetamine. Two others — Jeremy Ramsey, 25, and Jason Hensley, 30 — were arrested later and charged with the same crime. Hensley was also charged with possession of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of a meth precursor, and delivery or manufacture of drug paraphernalia. All four are from Nicholasville.
