MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky. - Two drug trafficking suspects are in jail after police say they found meth cooking devices and marijuana in a home off Husbands Road in McCracken County.

34-year-old Betty Martin and 30-year-old Terry Gilbert face several charges including manufacturing meth.

Sergeant Will Gilbert with the Paducah Police Department says the investigation began two weeks ago after police received a tip about possible drug activity at the couple's home.

Paducah's Special Weapons and Tactics Team searched the home Thursday.

Sergeant Gilbert said officers found marijuana, meth, packaging materials, scales, a "one-step" meth cooking device and $600 believed to be from meth trafficking.
