JOHNSON COUNTY, Ky. (WSAZ) -- A meth bust at a home in Sitka, in Johnson County, ends with charges against two men.

Sheriff Dwayne Price says deputies went to home in the 100-block of Puncheon Creek Road Tuesday after getting a tip about a possible meth lab.

Sheriff Price says deputies found a meth lab in a bedroom. They also located meth precursors and other drug paraphernalia, as well as a large quantity of finished meth in a clear plastic bag.

Price says the resident of the home, Zachary Jude, 27, was suffering from a possible overdose when they arrived at the house.

After being treated and decontaminated by Paintsville EMS and the Flatgap Fire Department, Jude was flown to Pikeville Medical Center.

Another man in the house, Donald L. Davis, 40, of Hagerhill was taken into custody and lodged in the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center.

Both men are being charged with complicity to manufacturing meth, complicity to unlawful possession of meth precursors, and complicity to drug paraphernalia – buy/possess.

A KSP DESI Unit was called to house to dismantle and dispose of the lab.
