HAZARD—Two Perry County men were indicted this month on charges related to manufacturing methamphetamine after a meth lab was found at their residence earlier this year.
Joseph Newton, 30, and 31-year-old Billie Womack were arrested by Perry County Sheriff’s Deputies in May after deputies responded to their residence on a tip that a fugitive was hiding there.
The Herald reported that upon arrival at the residence, deputies were permitted to search the premises, and found what appeared to be meth and young marijuana plants.
Newton and Womack are now facing charges and indictments on one count each of manufacturing meth and four counts each each first-degree wanton endangerment. Bail was set in each case at $75,000 cash.
