A tip Monday night led Kentucky State Police to an active methamphetamine lab in a Berea home occupied by a woman and several children.
Carol Alexander, 47, was charged with manufacturing meth, a Class B felony; three counts of first-degree wanton endangerment, all Class D felonies; and three counts endangering the welfare of a minor, all Class A misdemeanors.
Along with the one-step lab, officers found several other “meth-manufacturing objects,” said KSP Sgt. Dustin Hon.
One of the children in the Red Lick Road home was an infant, and two were toddlers, Hon said. He was unsure whether they were placed in the care of Social Services.
Alexander was lodged in the Madison County Detention Center. She was released Wednesday on a $10,000 property bond, according to the jail’s website.
If she is convicted on all charges, she could face up to 20 years in prison.
