Local and state authorities deactivated two methamphetamine labs located in a Jeep parked at the Danville Walmart Saturday morning.
Danville police responded to a complaint at 8:05 a.m. about a possibly intoxicated man stumbling around the Walmart parking lot and preparing to drive away in a gold Jeep. Police detained the man, later identified as Christopher A. Lunsford, 37, of Nicholasville.
During their investigation, officers spotted evidence of two active meth labs inside the vehicle and secured the area. Kentucky State Police, Boyle County EMS and Danville Fire Department personnel were called to the scene. State troopers deactivated the meth labs and seized evidence which included lithium batteries, an HCL gas generator and over-the-counter cold medication, according to Danville police.
Authorities decontaminated Lunsford and transported him to Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center for a medical clearance. After being cleared by doctors, Lunsford was booked into the Boyle County Detention Center on a charge of manufacturing methamphetamine.
