JOHNSON COUNTY, Ky. (WSAZ) -- The Johnson County Sheriff's Office arrested three people after a meth lab was found in a vacant mobile home.

Tuesday, deputies received a tip that there was a meth lab on Hyden Branch in Van Lear.

When they got to mobile home, they say there was a strong chemical smell and people were inside, although it was reportedly vacant.

Inside, they found several shake and bake meth labs, meth precursors and finished meth.

Frank Music, 44, of Cafiz, John P. Lemaster, 34, of Van Lear, and Amanda Johnson, 26, of Lowmansville, were all arrested and charged with manufacturing meth.

Johnson was also charged with possession of a controlled substance and marijuana possession.

Lemaster was served an outstanding warrant out of Johnson County for disorderly conduct, menacing and resisting arrest.

All three were taken to Paul B. Hall Regional Medical Center for decontamination.

They were booked in the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center.

Kentucky State Police helped in deconstruction of the meth labs.
