LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say they've arrested two people after officers discovered a meth lab in a Louisville home.
It happened at a home on Decker Road, near the intersection of Thompson Lane and West Pages Lane, shortly before 3 p.m. Tuesday, according to an arrest report.
Police say they received an anonymous tip that suspects were "cooking meth" at that location.
When officers arrived and knocked on the door, 21-year-old Jason Harmon allegedly kicked out a back window and made a run for it. Police apprehended him after a short foot chase.
Meanwhile, officers arrested 31-year-old Pamela Welch, who was also allegedly inside the home. Police say she admitted that there were ingredients and equipment inside the home that were used to make meth.
Officers say they recovered the material.
Both Harmon and Welch have been charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Harmon was also charged with fleeing or evading police.
Officers also say Welch was charged with endangering the welfare of a child via controlled substances, after her 11-year-old daughter told them she lives in the house, and has seen her mother making meth.
