At Kentucky DEPs request, OSC Glenn Adams was dispatched to the site at 8:30 pm on Wednesday, April 25th to assist local law enforcement and County Health officials with assessing and stabilizing unknown materials in a residence. Local law enforecement found several syringes and bags of material which appeared to be associated with mushroom cultivation of possibly hallucinagenic materials.
