Three Bedford men face drug charges following a traffic stop for no tail lights on a vehicle.

Kentucky State Police Trooper Brodie Jodry stopped a vehicle driven by Caleb Meadows, 22, of Bedford, after noticing a vehicle traveling on U.S. 421 without tail lights, a news release said.

Several ingredients used in manufacturing methamphetamine were found in the vehicle during the traffic stop. Jodry also recovered knives hidden throughout the vehicle.

Meadows was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, unlawful possession of a meth precursor, carrying a concealed weapon and no tail lamps.

Two passengers in the vehicle also were charged following the traffic stop.

Roy Holcomb, 37, of Bedford, was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, unlawful possession of a meth precursor, tampering with physical evidence and carrying a concealed weapon.

Geremy Walker, 39, of Bedford, was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and unlawful possession of a meth precursor.

All three men were lodged at the Carroll County Detention Center in Carrollton.

Jodry leads an ongoing investigation into the case.
