(Bowling Green, KY) -- On May 2, 2013, the Kentucky State Police Post in Bowling Green received a drug tip from the Barren County Sheriff's Office in reference to multiple suspected methamphetamine labs at a residence in Hart County. Units were also advised that William Milby, a wanted fugitive, was also at that location. After receiving the information, KSP Troopers responded to 992 Little Blue Springs Church Road to attempt to make contact with the residents. Upon arrival, contact was made with a resident of the property, Brandi Milby.
