MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - A domestic dispute led to two drug arrests in Farley, Ky.

The arrest happened at 1319 Yarbro Lane after police were requested by Social Services.

Social workers were investigating an alleged domestic assault involving Charles Lyons, 30, of Paducah. Police say Lyons caused problems with the workers, who then requested help from the McCracken County Sheriff's Department.

The McCracken County Sheriff's Department says they found a total of 30 methamphetamine labs at the home at 1319 and 1316 Yarbro Lane in Paducah.  Deputies also say they contacted the Reidland Farley Fire Department after they determined the home was contaminated.  

Lyons was arrested and charged with 25 counts of manufacturing methamphetamine. 

Buffy Timmons, 32, is charged with complicity to manufacturing methamphetamine (A Class "B" felony, punishable by 10 – 20 years), unlawful distribution of a meth precursor (A Class "D" felony, punishable by 1 – 5 years) and three counts of controlled substance endangerment to child (A Class "D" felony, each count punishable by 1 – 5 years).

Timmons is accused of assisting Lyons by purchasing items that were needed to manufacture meth and also in the actual cooking process of the meth. It was also discovered that Lyons and Timmons' three children, ranging in age from 6 to 11, were living at the home where the majority of the meth was being cooked.

Lyons is also charged with three counts of controlled substance endangerment to child 4th degree.

Both Lyons and Timmons were taken to the McCracken County Regional Jail.
