HUEYSVILLE — Methamphetamine manufacturing appears to be making a splash into Eastern Kentucky, with two major busts in as many weeks.

Last week, four people were arrested in Prestonsburg following a raid on a Green Acres apartment, at which a meth lab was found. On Wednesday, Kentucky State Police added another series of arrests; this time at Prater Fork, near Hueysville.

According to police reports, Brandon L. Arnett, 27, of Salyersville; Ryan A. Lykins, 29, of Hueysville; and Angela Shepherd, 32, of Hueysville, were all arrested late Wednesday evening near Hueysville for manufacturing meth.

Shepherd and Lykins were each arrested and charged with one count manufacturing methamphetamine, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, and endangering the welfare of a minor. Shepherd’s last charge was amended down in court Thursday to fourth-degree controlled substance endangerment to a child.

Arnett was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and first-degree possession of a controlled substance.

All three were arrested and transported to the Floyd County Detention Center.
