ASHLAND, Ky. (WSAZ) -- Boyd County Sheriff's Deputies say they busted an active meth lab at a duplex in the 2700-block of Winchester Avenue in Ashland.

Deputies say they were going to the duplex to make a controlled drug buy when they found the meth lab about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday.

When deputies tried to make an arrest, they say the suspect ran back into the house and then threw the meth lab onto the porch and took off. He was caught after a short foot chase.

Deputies say Brian Gibson is being charged with manufacturing meth, possession of the precursors used to make meth, fleeing and evading, and resisting arrest.

Gibson was taken to local hospital for treatment of a medical condition after he was taken into custody.

Deputies say they had to evacuate an upstairs apartment at the duplex due to the meth lab.

Kentucky State Police crews arrived at the scene to help clean up the meth.
