A Woodbine couple has been charged with methamphetamine related charges after items associated with meth production were discovered in a tent Thursday morning in the Faber community.
Whitley County Sheriff’s Sgt. Jeff Anderson responded Barton Hollow Road after receiving information that methamphetamine was allegedly being manufactured in a tent.
When Anderson arrived at the scene he located items associated with meth production or meth precursors, but nobody was in or around the tent, according to a sheriff’s department release.
Whitley County E911 advised deputies that Whitley County EMS had recently transported a woman from that location after she had given birth, the release noted.
Anderson made contact with the newborn’s mother and father at Baptist Health Corbin.
After further investigation, he charged Meagan Helton, 25, and Milford David Osborne, 42, both of Woodbine, with manufacturing methamphetamine and unlawful possession of meth precursors.
Helton was admitted to the hospital and Osborne was lodged in the Whitley County Detention Center, according to the release.
As of 5 p.m. Thursday, no bond had been set yet in Osborne’s case, according to the detention center’s website.
Anderson is continuing the investigation and more charges may be filed pending further investigation, the release stated.
Sgt. Dave Lennon and Deputy John Hill assisted with the investigation.
