HAGER HILL — Three people were arrested after Kentucky State Police responded to a report of a methamphetamine lab in Johnson County.

KSP received a call Sunday reporting the lab at a residence. Troopers Justin Wireman and Jake Stinnett responded to the scene, along with Sgt. Chris Hicks and Sheriff’s Deputy Rodney Minix.

Upon arrival, officers discovered a one-step bottle, a hydrogen chloride generator and meth precursors inside the home.

Jeffery Laudermilt, 29, of Hager Hill; Christina Price, 28, of Hager Hill; and Michael Wright, 35, of Hager Hill, were arrested at the scene and lodged in the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center. They were each charged with one county of first-degree manufacturing meth.

Trooper Wireman is continuing to investigate the case.
