Two people were arrested Thursday on charges connected to making meth in southern Graves County, Kentucky.

Russell Hargrove, 32, of Farmington, Ky. was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of a defaced firearm and possession of controlled substance first degree meth and possession of marijuana.

Rachel Elkins, 19, of Farmington, Ky. was also charged with manufacturing methamphetamine.

According to the sheriff's office, officers executed a search warrant around 2 p.m. Thursday on Burnett's Chapel Road in the Farmington, Ky. community and found a meth lab hidden under the mobile home. 

Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon says that in addition to finding the lab, an amount of methamphetamine was found on Hargrove.

During the search, Redmond says a defaced shotgun was found hidden in the home.  

Investigators say during the investigation, Elkins was also charged with making meth.

Redmon says manufacturing methamphetamine is a class B felony and he believes that the ATF will become involved regarding the sawed off shotgun that was located.

He says federal charges may be forthcoming as a result.

The Kentucky State Police assisted in the execution of the search warrant and Detective David Harrison with the Graves County Sheriff's Office is the lead investigator in the case.
