Meth tip leads to two arrests

Two women were arrested Saturday in Floyd County, after police discovered them driving with a mobile meth lab in their trunk. Sheriff John Hunt and deputies responded to a complaint of a green Chevy Cavalier driving through Auxier with a meth lab. Sheriff Hunt spotted the vehicle and pulled it over. Hunt said what officers found next confirmed their suspicions.

Arrested were 38-year-old Tiffanie Robinson, of Prestonsburg, and 42-year-old Sheena Tackett, of Shelbiana. Both were charged with wanton endangerment, tampering with physical evidence and numerous drug possession charges. Robinson was also charged with DUI and driving on a suspended license, and was served with four outstanding warrants. Tackett was also charged with manufacturing meth. Both women were arraigned in Floyd District Court this morning. They remain in the Floyd County Detention Center, under $10,000 cash bonds.
