HAZARD – Three people were indicted by the grand jury this month on meth-related charges after police said they found an active meth lab at a home in Bonnyman.
Daniel Combs, 50, Larry Jason Combs, 36, and 58-year-old Richard Combs were each indicted on specific charges of manufacturing meth, unlawful possession of a meth precursor, and first-degree possession of a controlled substance.
Richard and Daniel Combs were arrested on April 17 after a team dismantled what they described as a working meth lab allegedly found inside a shed at the rear of the property located off of Highway 267. Officers removed items such as drain cleaner, starter fluid, and batteries among other materials that can be used to make methamphetamine.
Both Richard and Daniel Combs were charged following their arrest, while Larry Jason Combs was charged by the grand jury on June 7.
In addition to the meth-related charges, each of the men were also charged with seven counts of first-degree wanton endangerment. According to the indictment, the charges were the result of the active meth lab causing “extreme danger of serious physical injury” to the police officers at the site.
Bail for each of the men was set at $100,000, plus home incarceration. They are each due for arraignment in Perry Circuit Court on July 5.
