While a successful Halloween on Main Street was winding down Friday night, and all the trick-or-treaters were making their way home to inventory their bags of goodies, the Spencer County Sheriff’s Department raided an active methamphetamine lab at 1014 Bloomfield Road.

The house is currently empty as its owner, Michael Grubb, is still being held in the Shelby County jail for allegedly running down his estranged wife in the center of Taylorsville just a few weeks ago.

Police apprehended two friends of Grubbs in the house, after one was located in a closet and the other hiding behind a dresser.

Eric Aubrey, 30, of Bloomfield Road in Taylorsville, and Samuel Moore, 33, of Boardwalk Avenue in Shepherdsville, were arrested and both are being held in the Shelby County jail under a $10,000 cash bond. They are being charged with Manufacturing Methamphetamine, 1st Degree and Possession of a Controlled Substance, 1st Degree.

“This is definitely not the first time down this road with Aubrey,” said Spencer County Sheriff’s Deputy Kyle Bennett.

According to police, they have been watching the two suspects for quite a while.

The police said with the evidence they had gathered over time and with information supplied by informants, they were able to obtain a warrant to search the residence on Friday.

Police officers said they were at the scene for approximately four hours confiscating the evidence and had to rotate out to avoid the toxic fumes in the house.
