     Meth.  It's dangerous, for the people who use it, the people who make it and the people trying to stop it.  The latest proof comes from Scott County.  Police now accuse these two men, Jeremy Centers and Philip Jean, of manufacturing meth after a bust Thursday night in Centers' home on North Dividing ridge road.  centers is also accused of wanton endangerment.  Police say when they arrived at the home, just after five o'clock, Centers tried to get rid of the evidence.

     "They attempted to pour their meth lab down a drain, and upon doing that, they caused a fire where mr. centers received some minor injuries, some burns, and the five deputies and the one state trooper who responded to the call had to be de-contaminated, where they had some bronchial irritation from the chemicals from the meth lab," explains Trooper Ron Turley with Kentucky State Police.

     Trooper Turley says the deputies and trooper are doing fine.  He says the number of meth labs found in Scott County has doubled, from last year to this year.
