GLEN JEAN - Suspicious activity reported by a church parishioner led to the discovery of a Clandestine Methamphetamine lab.

The Fayette County Sheriffs department responded to a call around 12:45 Sunday afternoon regarding a suspicious vehicle parked near Glen Jean Union Church. 2 suspects were observed having sex in the front seat of the vehicle when the Fayette County Deputy arrived on scene.

After speaking with the 2 suspects, Deputy Stevens observed them to be under the influence of some type of controlled substance. A K-9 unit was contacted, and the dog indicated the presence of narcotics hidden in the vehicle. 27 year old Steven Blankenship and 35 year old Jessica Lusk, both of clear fork, were arrested for felony charges of 'operating or attempting to operate a Clandestine Meth Lab'. Sherriff Steve Kessler said their poor choice of location for their illicit activity resulted in a very serious offense.
