Bunche meth labs found

four children present

GLASGOW — Two active methamphetamine labs and chemicals were within reach of four small children inside a Bunche Avenue apartment, according to Glasgow Police Department citations.

When officers arrived at 612 Bunche Ave., Apt. B, on Feb. 9 after receiving a drug and child welfare complaint, a woman who identified herself as Benita Coffey told them to come inside the residence, according to the citation. Once police were inside, Noel W. Jennings Jr. allegedly ran to the bathroom, where an officer allegedly found him near a warm crack pipe that was “in plain view.”

Another person, Eddie D. Mitchell, 40, was inside the residence at the time. Jennings allegedly told police Mitchell had done “something” with an active lab that was found in a bedroom closet, according to the citation.

Another active lab was apparently found in the apartment, but the citation does not not specify where. Jennings allegedly told officers that the labs, multiple meth precursors and drug paraphernalia were his.

The report also does not give the ages of the children who were in the presence of the material.

Mitchell, who does not live at the residence, was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, according to a GPD citation. He remained in the Barren County Detention Center on Tuesday afternoon in lieu of a $25,000 bond.

Jennings was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, first offense; unlawful possession of meth precursor, first offense; first-degree possession of controlled substance, first offense, methamphetamine; drug paraphernalia buy/possess; four counts of first-degree wanton endangerment; and trafficking in controlled substance, first offense, less than two grams of methamphetamine, according to a citation. He remained in jail Tuesday on a $25,000 bond.

Barren County Jailer Matt Mutter said Coffey was booked under the name Benita Fauber. She was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, first offense; unlawful possession of meth precursor, first offense; first-degree possession of controlled substance, first offense, methamphetamine; drug paraphernalia buy/possess; and four counts of first-degree wanton endangerment. She remained in jail Tuesday in lieu of a $25,000 bond.
