MUHLENBERG CO., KY (WFIE) -

Three men are in jail Friday morning after a traffic stop in Muhlenberg County led troopers to a meth lab.

William Mitchell Jr., James Dukes and Cody Howton are being charged with manufacturing meth, possession of drug paraphernalia and unlawful possession of meth precursors.

According to Kentucky State Police, the three were pulled over Thursday night for registration violations on Kentucky 175 near the Midland community.

That's when a trooper allegedly found a meth lab and meth related items inside the truck.

All three were arrested and taken to the Muhlenberg County Detention Center.
