Upon taking Murray into custody, officers where made aware of an amount of marijuana in the residence. Officers obtained a search warrant for the residence and located ingredients and materials used for the manufacturing in methamphetamine.
 
Some of the items were hidden in an air vent under the trailer, while other items were located in plain view within the residence. Deputies located a considerable amount of methamphetamine in the finished stage in several locations within the residence. It appeared that the actual methamphetamine was being manufactured inside of the residence. There were also several firearms in the residence in close proximity to the methamphetamine.
 
Three juveniles were removed from the residence and released to the custody of relatives. Deputies are concerned that the children have been exposed to the methamphetamine and the products used to manufacture the methamphetamine. The Cabinet for Families and Children will be assisting with this portion of the ongoing investigation.
 
Kenneth Murray and Jamie Bryan were charged with the following charges:
 
Manufacturing methamphetamine, Possession of a Controlled Substance 1st Degree, Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Controlled Substance Endangerment to a Child. Both individuals were lodged in the McCracken County Jail.
 
The Livingston County Sheriff’s Department would like to encourage the public to report suspected drug activity and would like to thank the members of the public who have assisted within the last several months. This is the third methamphetamine lab that has been located and an arrest made in just a little over a month in Livingston County.
