Harlan Man Arrested for Cooking Meth Behind Post Office

A Harlan County man has been accused of cooking meth behind a post office. A press release stated that the Harlan County Sheriff’s office received a complaint last Thursday of multiple subjects making methamphetamine behind the Cawood U.S. Post Office. Deputy Danny Lewis, along with Chief Deputy Matt Cope and Harlan County Sheriff’s Office narcotics detectives, arrived at the scene and found Teddy Smith in possession of needles and several items used to manufacture meth. Smith attempted to destroy the evidence by tossing two packs of Sudafed tablets into the weeds. Deputies also found suspected salts in a baggie along with a cut open soda can. The evidence will be sent to a crime lab for analysis.
Smith is also wanted in Virginia on felony and misdemeanor warrants, including fleeing from police. He has been charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, unlawful possession of meth precursor, and possession of drug paraphernalia, and is being held at the Harlan County Detention Center without bond. Further arrests are pending, as the investigation is on-going.
