PADUCAH, Ky. (2/10/14) — Detectives with the McCracken and Marshall County Sheriff's Departments drug divisions arrested five Paducah residents Monday, Feb. 10 after discovering multiple methamphetamine labs as part of a meth manufacturing investigation.

At approximately 3:30 p.m., detectives located several individuals at the Country Aire Mobile Home Park on Clarks River Road in Paducah as part of their investigation.

Detectives then discovered several methamphetamine labs in one of the mobile homes.

One of the meth labs was still actively releasing gasses, leading detectives to believe that meth had been manufactured very recently.

A more thorough search was conducted and other items used to make meth were located inside the trailer. The residents of that trailer, Connie Wallace, Colleen Dunn, and Joseph Scott were all arrested and transported to the McCracken County Jail.

The resident of another mobile home at Country Aire, Casey Jones, 47, was also arrested after it was discovered that he purchased Sudafed and assisted in the purchase of other items to manufacture methamphetamine. He transferred the Sudafed to other individuals for the manufacture of meth.

Jones was charged with unlawful distribution of a meth precursor.

During the investigation, it was determined that Dunn, 33, Wallace, 51, and Scott, 41, corroborated to manufacture methamphetamine at the residence.

They were charged with manufacturing methamphetamine. Scott was also charged with unlawful possession of a meth precursor.

Another individual, George West, 40, was arrested for a probation violation warrant.

Currently, West and Dunn are on probation and Wallace is on parole for prior drug convictions.

More charges against other suspects are expected.

Individuals with information pertaining to illegal drug crimes can contact the McCracken County Sheriff's Department Drug Division directly at (270) 448-1516 or (270) 444-5157.
