ROCKPORT, Ind. (March 15, 2016) – A Rockport couple is behind bars after an ongoing drug investigation led to a meth lab bust.

On Sunday, authorities attempted to serve an arrest warrant at the couple’s home in the 800 block of Sycamore Street. The warrant stemmed from a narcotics investigation that led to charges being filed on Jonathan Byers, 32.

Troopers found Byers walking from the home and arrested him without incident.

While searching Byers, troopers found coffee filters, believed to have been used in a meth lab. They later tested positive for meth.

A probation search was conducted by the officers at the home. During the search, police found a “one-pot” meth lab, articles used to manufacture meth, a hypodermic needle and other drug paraphernalia.

Toni Allen, 48, was inside the home and placed into custody. Both Byers and Allen were transported and lodged in the Spencer County Jail, where they’re facing several drug charges.
