A traffic stop in Muhlenberg County last night led to the arrests of three area men on methamphetamine charges.
Kentucky State Trooper Jon McGehee stopped a vehicle driven by 36-year old William Mitchell, Jr. of Bremen on KY 175 North just after 8 p.m. for alleged registration violations.
A news release says further investigation turned up a methamphetamine lab inside the vehicle, as well as items commonly associated with making meth.
KSP arrested Mitchell and his two passengers—37-year old James Dukes of Madisonville and 21-year old Cody Howton of Madisonville—on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of methamphetamine ingredients.
All three were lodged in the Muhlenberg County Jail.
