A Grand Jury handed down several indictments on area residents after police discovered a meth lab in Hancock County.

Gene Wright, 32, of New Cumberland was indicted on one count of operating a clandestine drug lab and one count of conspiracy to operate a clandestine drug lab.

Kayla Shaderline, 27, of Newell and Glenn Galloway, 33, of Chester were each indicted on one count of conspiracy to operate a clandestine drug lab.

Chester Police Chief Todd Murray said officers from the Chester Police Department responded to a 911 call of a potential breaking and entering at a home on Collins Memorial Drive in Chester. When police arrived, officers entered the home and discovered materials indicative of an operational meth lab. 

According to police, a fourth person connected to the case was arrested after turning herself into Hancock County Sheriff’s Deputies. Police say Nicole Carnes, 26, of Chester was charged with one county of purchasing precursor materials with the intent to manufacture meth.

Officials say Carnes purchased pseudoephedrine, a product commonly used  to make meth. According to police, she gave it to Wright for the production of meth. Carnes was arraigned by Magistrate Mike Powell and is due back in court on September 23.

Wright, Shaderline, and Galloway are scheduled to appear in court on September 22.
