A McCracken County man faces charges after sheriff's deputies found a meth lab in his home. 37-year-old Andrew Gewe is charged with unlawful distribution of a meth precursor, and manufacturing methamphetamine. Remains of an inactive meth lab were found in the garage when detectives searched a home on Mayfield Metropolis Road Wednesday afternoon. Sudafed blister packs, lithium battery casings that had been cut open, ammonia nitrate, and other related items were also found.  The suspect had allegedly been purchasing Pseudoephedrine for others that were cooking methamphetamine. While detectives were conducting surveillance earlier in the day, they stopped Gewe as he was leaving the home.  He was arrested for driving on a suspended operators license, failure to provide proof of insurance, having improper registration plates, and no registration receipt. Gewe was taken to the McCracken County Regional Jail.
