GLASGOW — The Barren-Edmonson-Allen Drug Task Force reports searching locations in two counties Monday for different reasons.

The DTF made contact with an individual at a residence at 2544 Bradshaw Road in Barren County in an attempt to locate a subject for outstanding warrants, according to a DTF press release.

The person being sought was not there, said DTF Detective Ron Lafferty.

A search of the residence, however, revealed property that was recently stolen from locations in Scottsville, including power tools and tool boxes, according to the press release.

DTF was assisted at the scene by the Barren County Sheriff’s Office, and the investigation is ongoing, according to the press release.

Lafferty said the DTF does not believe at this time that the person who was at the residence had anything to do with the thefts.

Also Monday, the DTF executed a search warrant at 1281 Steenbergen Road in Scottsville, and the search revealed a methamphetamine lab along with multiple items used to manufacture methamphetamine and various items of drug paraphernalia, according to a separate press release.

The two occupants of the residence, Jordan M. Tracy, 25, and Bobby Matthew Pedigo, 23, were arrested at the scene, according to the statement.

The charges include manufacturing methamphetamine, first offense; facilitation to manufacture methamphetamine, first offense; possession of a controlled substance, first degree, first offense; and possession of drug paraphernalia, according to the statement. Both subjects were lodged in the Allen County Detention Center. The DTF was assisted at the scene by the Allen County Sheriff’s Office and received other assistance by the Glasgow Police Department, according to the press release.
