Child removed from home with meth lab

Whitley County, KY - The Corbin Police Department found everything needed for a fully-functional methamphetamine lab Friday at a Corbin woman’s home.

Cathy Faith Wilson, 34, of Corbin, was arrested without incident for unlawful possession of meth precursors, possession of controlled substances, wanton endangerment and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The meth lab at the time was not in production, but officers did find a substance inside the home that tested positive for methamphetamine.
