Kentucky State Police say they received an anonymous tip that 25-year-old Jacob Estep of Horse Branch was manufacturing Methamphetamine at his residence on Arnold Leach Road. Two troopers and an Ohio County Sheriff’s deputy went to residence to investigate Sunday afternoon around 1:30.
Upon approaching the home, one of the troopers says he saw an HCL Generator in the bed of a Ford pickup and after receiving consent to search inside, a working meth lab was found.
Estep, 24-year-old Rebecca Stofer and 24-year-old Mathias Bryant of Beaver Dam were arrested. Troopers say Stofer had her two children in the residence in close proximity to the working lab. All three are facing meth making charges as well as child endangerment.
