Kentucky Woman Arrested After Mobile Meth Lab Found Inside Car

CREATED Jan 22, 2014

HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. – A Todd County woman has been arrested after police said a mobile meth lab was found inside of her car.

Officials with the Hopkinsville Police Department said 33-year-old Jennifer Cunningham-Hadden was arrested just before 8 a.m. Monday at a McDonald's parking lot in Hopkinsville. She has been charged with public intoxication of a controlled substance, unauthorized parking in a handicapped zone, and drug trafficking of a controlled substance in the first degree.

Police said they were called in for a welfare check after someone reported there was a woman slumped over inside her car. They said Cunningham-Hadden was found in the driver's seat with her foot on the break and the car running.

The driver's side door was apparently tied shut with a rope.

When they opened the door, police said the strong odor of either was wafting out of the car. They said a bag with ingredients used to make meth was found inside the vehicle. Two bags of meth, several glass pipes and scales were also recovered.

As a safety precaution, the McDonald's was closed for three hours while police cleared the scene. The restaurant has since reopened.
