LEITCHFIELD, KY (WAVE) - Grayson County Sheriffs Deputies showed up to a house on Monday with an arrest warrant, and left with four people in custody, as well as seizing large amounts of drugs, paraphernalia and firearms.

According to a release from police, deputies went to a home in the 3800 block of Bloomington Road in Leitchfield to serve an arrest warrant on Christopher Rigsby, 36, for several felonies. When they arrived on Monday, they found Rigsby and Stacey Lambert, 34, working a "one-step" meth lab in a car.
