A Leitchfield man was arrested on meth charges on Thursday, May 18.
At approximately 11:49 a.m. on Thursday, the Leitchfield Police Department (LPD) attempted to serve an emergency protective order (EPO) on Thaddeus D. Grant, 32, of Leitchfield.
Officers made contact with Grant as he was sitting in a vehicle parked beside a residence located on North Broadway in Leitchfield, according to a news release from LPD Detective Kevin Smith.
Upon initial contact with Grant, police observed two possible methamphetamine labs (commonly referred to as “shake and bake” or “one pot” labs) inside the vehicle along with other items commonly used to manufacture methamphetamine, the release states.
“Mr. Grant was detained, and a search warrant was obtained for the vehicle, as well as the adjacent residence,” Smith said in the release. “Upon execution of the search warrant, numerous items consistent with the manufacturing of methamphetamine were seized.”
Grant was arrested and charged with Manufacturing Methamphetamine, 1st Offense, and Possession of Methamphetamine.
Grant was transported to Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center to receive medical clearance and then to the Grayson County Detention Center without incident.
He was lodged in the Grayson County Detention Center on a $25,000 cash bond.
The case remains under investigation, and additional charges may be forthcoming.
