Police find active meth lab while arresting man on unrelated warrant

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man was in the wrong place at the wrong time when officers showed up at a home to arrest another man and found an active meth lab.

Police say a 3-year-old child was present in the home in the 300 block of north 23rd Street when officers showed up around 5 p.m. on Dec. 28 to serve warrants on 30-year-old Robert Dayton.

That's when LMPD investigators say another man, 21-year-old Dustin Lynch, tried to sneak out the back door to hide a one-pot meth lab.

Police also found drug scales and dangerous chemicals used to make meth.

Detectives say Dayton had a needle and pipe in his front pocket, and tried to hide three bags of meth in a closet.

Both men are charged with manufacturing meth, trafficking in a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and tampering with physical evidence.

Dayton is also charged with endangering the welfare of a minor.
