Middlesboro Police say couple had meth ingredients next to baby

MIDDLESBORO, Ky. (WYMT) -- Police say they found meth ingredients in a car next to a baby.

They arrested the driver, 31-year-old Sherry Conley and the passenger, 30-year-old Delbert Roark.

Officers say it started as a routine traffic stop in the Middlesboro Walmart parking lot Saturday morning. An officer pulled the car over for a license plate violation.

The arrest citation says the couple had just bought the items.

"Even though the chemicals hadn't been mixed yet, they were going somewhere to sell to someone to cook it or they were going to manufacture it themselves,' said Lt. Tom Busic.

Both Conley and Roark are being in the Bell County Detention Center. Bond for both is $100,000 full cash.

Middlesboro Police say another family member took custody of the baby following the arrests.
