The Kentucky State Police is investigating after an anonymous tip led officers Tuesday evening to two active methamphetamine labs in Taylorsville that led to five arrests.

According to KSP, officers responded to a trailer on Dogwood Circle where Christopher J. Clark, 35, of Taylorsville, was found in the front yard of the residence with an HCL generator used to manufacture meth.

Troopers noticed smoke coming from the trailer and contacted the Taylorsville-Spencer County Fire Department. Once officials entered the trailer, two active labs were found and dismantled by the Frankfort Post Clandestine Lab.

KSP reported that no one was injured, but police arrested five in connection to the lab, including Clark. The others arrested include Williams R. Mayes, 43, of London, Ky.; Christopher T. Morris, 38, of Mt. Washington, Ky. Victor G. Ellis, 47, of Taylorsville; and Andrea D. Woodrome, 33, of Taylorsville.

All suspects are charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and are being housed at the Shelby County Detention Center, according to KSP.

The investigation is ongoing.
