(BEDFORD)- Two Bedford women were arrested after police found meth at a home in the 400 block of N Street Saturday night.
According to Bedford Police Chief Dennis Parsley officers were called at 11:47 p.m. to the area after a report of a parking problem.
When police arrived they found a vehicle blocking a driveway with a purse on the roadway next to the car.
"At that time Rebecca Lake came out of the house and told police she didn't know who threw the purse in the roadway or who it belonged to," Parsley says. "Then later, Miss Lake handed officers a small bag that contained meth and one pill."
Police then asked for permission to search the purse, which Lake admitted was hers.
"Inside the purse officers found a syringe that had blood on it and that was filled with meth," Parsley added.
Lake then allegedly told police there were more drugs inside the home at 414 N Street.
"She told officers that her and Deanna Jones, the homeowner, had flushed some of the drugs when they saw police pull up to the house," Parsley says.
Jones gave police permission to search the home and officers found another small bag of meth inside.
Lake, 45, of 3939 Washington Ave., and 45-year-old Deanna Jones, of 414 N St., were both arrested on charges of possession of meth and maintaining a common nuisance.
