Videotaping the cleanup of the lab for the case was a Kentucky State Police officer. Both the KSP officer and Craycraft are part of the State Police Drug Task Force. Clark County Deputy Sheriff Paul Howard was answering a report of a prowler in the area when he discovered the lab, which was in a 12-foot by 24-foot storage building next to the mobile home. Howard arrested Mike Ritchie and charged him with the manufacturing of methamphetamine. The Clark County Fire Department was called out to help with the cleanup of the lab.
