LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - Two people are behind bars in Laurel County after police said the pair had components to make meth.

The Laurel County Sheriff's Department arrested Danny Hicks, 40, and Davan Rena Smith, 40, both of London, Friday.

Both are facing charges of public intoxication, possessing drug paraphernalia, first-degree trafficking in a controlled substance, manufacturing meth and first-degree possession of meth.

Smith is facing an additional charge of second-degree fleeing or evading police.

The sheriff's department said deputies responded to a disturbance complaint around 2:30 p.m. at an area off Somerset Road.

When deputies arrived, the sheriff's department said they found Hicks and Smith in possession of components used to make meth, such as coffee filters with white residue on them, rubber hoses also with white residue on them, baggies containing a white crystal substance, pipes and hypodermic needles.

The white crystal substance field-tested positive for meth, police said.

Police said when deputies first arrived at the area, Smith ran off over a hill and into a wood line. Deputies located her shortly after.

Hicks and Smith were taken to the Lauren County Detention Center.
