A Portsmouth man and a Sciotoville woman were among the three people arrested at a meth lab in South Shore, Ky. Alvin Branham, 42, of Portsmouth and Tasmine Hammons, 25, of Sciotoville, are both charged with trafficking in methamphetamine while Dennis Darby, Jr., 45, of South Shore, faces charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, first degree wanton endangerment, and possession of heroin.


On Saturday, at around 8 p.m., Greenup County Sheriff Keith Cooper said the Greenup County Drug Interdiction team discovered a large amount of methamphetamine inside a vehicle in South Shore. Upon further investigation, the Drug Interdiction team responded to 259 Sunshine Lane in South Shore.


Once at that residence an active methamphetamine lab was located. Inside that residence were Darby and a five-year-old child. There was a large amount of drug paraphernalia and items used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine inside the residence.


During a further search, heroin was found hidden on Darby’s person. All three were lodged in the Greenup County Detention Center.


Cooper said more charges are expected to be forthcoming. He said the case is being investigated by deputies Cody Fuller and Jason Bryant.
