3 arrested after meth lab bust in Calloway County

CALLOWAY COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - Three men were arrested after sheriff's deputies and police officers found a meth lab at a home in Calloway County.

Calloway County Sheriff's deputies and law enforcement with the Murray Police Department checked out a tip of possible meth production on Seth Lane in Calloway County.

As officers approached the front door that was slightly ajar, they could smell a noxious odor coming from the home. When officers knocked, they could hear rustling inside. Three men came to the door and gave consent for officers to enter the home.
