LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Three people have been arrested in Shelby County after police say the group had an active meth lab inside a vehicle, while two children were also present.

Kentucky State Police received a complaint on Monday, just after 8:30 p.m. about possible drug activity involving a Dodge Ram that was traveling south on Eminence Pike in Shelbyville.

Kentucky State Police arrested the vehicle's driver Brenda Fugate, 33, along with passengers Brad Sparkman, 27, and Danny Sizemore, 37. The arrests were made after police searched the car and an active meth lab was found in the back of the vehicle by a canine unit, according to a news release.

Authorities removed the two kids from the vehicle and they were taken to Kosair Children's Hospital for evaluation. 

Fugate, Sparkman and Sizemore are all charged with manufacturing meth, possession of meth precursors, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts of wanton endangerment. Fugate is also charged with several driving infractions.

"The meth labs that we have that are in vehicles, what we refer to as a moving meth lab, they are very, very volatile meaning they could blow up at any point in time," Trooper Kendra Wilson told WDRB.

The suspects are being held at the Shelby County Detention Center.
