LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police have arrested a man and a woman who were allegedly staying with their children in a hotel room contaminated with meth.
According to an arrest report, police stopped 30-year-old Sarah E. Simmons for a traffic violation at 9801 Bunsen Parkway outside the Extended Stay America hotel late Wednesday afternoon. That's when police say they discovered a "large amount" of suspected meth packaged for sale in the vehicle.
Police say 36-year-old Roland S. Ritter gave police written permission to search their room at the Extended Stay America hotel. That's where police say they found packaged meth and marijuana as well as several ingredients commonly used to make meth, including Coleman fuel, a coffee grinder, mason jars and funnels.
After running a check of records, officers determined that Simmons and Ritter have both purchased dozens of boxes of products containing pseudoephedrine during the same time period.
Police say two children -- Simmons's 9-year-old daughter and Ritter's 2-year-old son had been staying in the hotel room. According to the report, officials from the Louisville Health Department conducted a "meth swab" on the walls of the room and test results indicated the room was positive for meth contamination.
Simmons and Ritter were taken into custody around 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 17. They're both charged with endangering the welfare of a minor with a controlled substance, trafficking in a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
