Hampton, Kentucky: Three and four year old children test positive for methamphetamine

Three children, the youngest of which were 3 and 4 year old boys, were removed from a Hampton, Kentucky home where several meth labs were seized. Medical tests performed on the children revealed that the younger children tested positive for methamphetamine.

Kenneth Murray and Jamie Bryan, who were arrested at the scene, have been charged with manufacturing meth, possession of a controlled substance, possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and three counts each of endangering a child. Murray will also be charged with using a fake ID to buy pseudoephedrine on three different occasions, a class D felony that is punishable by a 5 year sentence in a state prison. A $20,000 cash bond was set for both suspects, who are currently being held at McCraken County Jail.

The meth lab bust, the third bust in Livingston County in a little over a month, was prompted by 7 months of complaints by neighbors, according to Channel 6 News.
