State police arrested two Trimble County residents on drug charges after receiving a call of an assault Wednesday night at an apartment complex.
Kentucky State Police arrested 32-year-old David Wentworth and 39-year-old Rebecca Wentworth, both of Bedford, after responding to an apartment on McDowell Lane.
Troopers smelled an odor of methamphetamine being produced when they entered the apartment while responding to the assault report, a release said.
Troopers found an active meth lab along with several ingredients used in methamphetamine production after obtaining a search warrant for the residence. A small amount of finished methamphetamine was also found during the search.
The arrests were at the same apartment complex where six people were arrested on drug charges earlier this month, KSP Post 5 spokesman Brad Arterburn said.
Police don't believe the two cases are connected.
David Wentworth was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine and unlawful possession of a meth precursor. He was also served with a warrant for burglary and terroristic threatening.
Rebecca Wentworth was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, unlawful possession of a meth precursor, possession of a synthetic cannabinoid, promotion contraband and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Both were taken to the Carroll County Detention Center in Carrollton. David Wentworth remains lodged on a $500 cash bond.
