Suspected drug lab raided

Published 12:00 am Friday, March 7, 2003

A Peaks Mill man is wanted in connection with a Lexington burglary that led Kentucky State Police to what they say was a methamphetamine and ecstasy laboratory on Indian Gap Road.

State police reported a University of Kentucky faculty member saw a man they believe was Michael D. Clark, 42, taking items from the chemistry laboratory on campus. Clark fled before an officer arrived at the scene, police reported, but he left behind a duffel bag containing burglary tools, stolen chemicals and a notebook with instructions on how to make illegal drugs along with information that led them to the home at 2470 Indian Gap Road.

Fayette County warrants have been issued for Clark’s arrest on charges of two counts of third-degree burglary and possession of burglary tools, police reported.

KSP Sgt. Gerald Wilson said today authorities are waiting for a federal indictment to be issued before arresting Clark.

Clark, in a long voice mail message left with The State Journal at 7:18 p.m. Thursday, said police ransacked his home without letting him know why.
