Meth lab found in Breathitt Co.

Three people are in jail after police say they were caught making meth in Breathitt County.

The homeowner said he had no idea the three suspects were allegedly making meth on his property.

Bobby Salyers says he was staying in Leslie County for a couple of  weeks when he got a call that some people were in his house that shouldn't be, so he called police.

Police say once they caught the three suspects, they found an active meth lab in the shed.

Bobby Salyers, the homeowner, said he had no idea that the lab was there.

Police arrested Salyer's son Christopher Salyers, Todd Sexton and Kenneth Neace.

The three suspects are charged with manufacturing meth and unlawful possession of meth precursors.

Police say a juvenile was found at the home unresponsive in a closet. She was taken to the hospital and later sent home.
