On Friday, Louisville Metro Police responded to a 911 call from a woman that claimed her there was a strong odor coming from her neighbor’s apartment and she believed that they were cooking methamphetamine. When police arrived, the tenant of the apartment, 45 year old Jimmy Ashford, gave permission for his home to be searched.
Once inside the apartment, police confirmed that there was a strong odor in the apartment. They then found a bottle in the bathroom that was smoking. Police immediately evacuated the apartment. The Louisville Metro Police Clandestine Lab Team was then brought in to dismantle the lab. The team found paraphernalia and a vessel containing chemicals commonly used to produce crystal meth.
LMPD arrested Ashford, as well as 41 year old Lena Brock and 39 year old Dana Potts. Both women were at the apartment with Ashford. All three are being charged with the manufacture of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
