LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Kentucky State Police arrested two people Tuesday after authorities discovered a meth lab inside a home in Owen County, according to a news release.

Police arrested Amber Rapp, 28, and Kenneth Sams, 35, who are both Owenton residents, after police discovered the meth lab inside a home in the 100 block of Dogwood Drive. Investigators say Rapp's child was also inside the home at the time of the discovery.

Police state that when officers first arrived at the home, they did not make contact with the suspects, but authorities say they were able to smell a strong chemical scent from the house.

Officials then obtained a search warrant, at which time the meth lab was discovered.

The child was taken to the hospital for examination and was then released into the care of a relative.

Police have charged both Rapp and Sams with manufacturing meth, possession of a meth precursor, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of a controlled substance, and endangerment to child welfare.

Both Rapp and Sams are being held at the Carroll County Detention Center.
