LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Shepherdsville Police arrested two people Wednesday evening, after they were found in a car with a 3-year-old, a 1-year-old and three grams of methamphetamine.
According to arrest reports, it started just before 6 p.m. in the parking lot of the Little Caesars near the interchange between East 4th Street and Kentucky Turnpike in Shepherdsville. Police say they were sent to that location after someone reported that they saw two intoxicated people inside a grey passenger car with little children in the back seat.
When officers arrived, they allegedly saw two people -- 28-year-old Michael Chilton and 25-year-old Tracey Rogers -- in a grey passenger car. A 3-year-old and a 1-year-old were also in the car in the back seat.
Police say when they confronted Chilton and Rogers, they saw Rogers try to hide a cut-off straw in the center console. Police say they then searched the car, and found three grams of "a white crystallized substance" in the center console.
That substance tested positive as methamphetamine in a field test, according to the arrest report.
Both Chilton and Rogers were arrested. They're charged with possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine), endangering the welfare of a minor and possession of drug paraphernalia.
They are currently being held in the Bullitt County Detention Center.
