Officers with the city of Greenup Police Department along with officers from the Raceland Police Department responded to a residence on Chestnut Street within the city of Greenup to complaints of heavy traffic and strange odors coming from the residence.

Upon arriving Greenup officers Bob Stewart and Rick Gullet spoke to a Brian Williams age 37 and advised him of the complaint and conducted a search of his property.

Upon conducting the search, various drugs and paraphernalia were discovered and removed by police, including methamphetamine, marijuana, needles and several ‘various control substances.’

Among the available precursors needed to make meth, the officers also busted what they call a “shake and bake” meth lab, which was operating out of a building on the property.

Williams was arrested on multiple felony charges along with manufacturing methamphetamine, unlawful possession of meth precursors, and possession of controlled substance.

No further information is available.
