BARBOURVILLE, Ky. (WTVQ) – Barbourville Police say 47-year old Eddie Gray of Barbourville was cooking and selling meth out of a pickup truck in a car wash bay just off of 25E. Investigators say it all began Saturday morning when officers responded to a suspicious vehicle complaint at the car wash.
Officers say when they arrived, they found a recently finished one-step methamphetamine cook inside a 1993 Ford pickup truck. Investigators say they think Gray was selling his just finished product to walk-up customers in the car wash bay where he was found.
