        State Police say they've discovered a meth lab at the Knights Inn off Stanton Way in Lexington, just east of Interstate 75.

        Police have charged 39 year-old Thomas John Stephens and 41 year-old Jenny Keller with manufacturing meth and wanton endangerment.

       Officials say there was also a 13 year-old child in the motel with the two suspects. Police say the child is the kin of Keller, and was taken to UK Hospital as a precaution.

       State Police say they were tipped off a few days earlier that Stephens was allegedly manufacturing meth between Scott and Fayette counties. Stephens was on parole after being convicted of manufacturing meth back in 2008.

       Police say they caught up with Stephens at the motel around 2pm Monday afternoon, but were unable to gain entry into the building until a parole officer arrived around 4pm.

      Investigators say there was no incident in the arrest.
