A man and woman are facing drug charges after police responded to a complaint of methamphetamine allegedly being produced at a residence in Lynch.
Tiffany Nicole Quillen, 26, and Dana Howard, 31, both of Lynch, were arrested by Lynch City Police Chief Jackie Stewart on Friday.
According to the citations, police went to a residence to perform a knock and talk due to numerous complaints of methamphetamine being made. Quillen answered the door and police explained why they were there and asked for consent to enter the apartment occupied by Quillen and Howard. Consent was given, according to the citations. Stewart asked if there was any meth-related materials in the apartment. Quillen said no. However, police said in the citations they could see in plain view multiple syringes, used coffee filters, salt and a plastic jar. Police also found a small generator. Both Quillen and Howard cooperated fully with the officers, stating they had drug problems and wanted and needed help.
Quillen was charged with unlawful possession of a meth precursor and lodged in the Harlan County Detention Center on a $5,000 full cash bond.
