PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) - Police in Paducah bust what they call a methamphetamine lab inside a local hotel room. 

Detective Matt Wentworth says they got some information about drugs being manufactured in a hotel room near I-24 and exit 24 in Paducah.  Detectives say they witnessed the door open and dryer sheets stuffed into the air conditioning vents, allegedly to mask the smell of making meth.  In addition, officiers say they saw digital scales used for weighing drugs.

Dustin Giller, 29 of Kevil, Tracy Scott, 37, and Benjamin Smith, 27, both of Metropolis, Illinois, were arrested.  All three face charges related to the case.
