(ROCKPORT) - A Rockport couple are behind bars after an ongoing drug investigation developed into additional methamphetamine related charges.

On Sunday, at 8:15 p.m., Master Trooper Trey Lytton and Spencer County Deputy David Hall attempted to serve an arrest warrant at 827 Sycamore Street, Lot 11 in Rockport.

The warrant stemmed from a narcotics investigation by Trooper Lytton that lead to charges being filed on 32-year-old Jonathan S. Byers of Rockport.

Trooper Lytton located Byers walking from his Sycamore Street residence and placed him into custody without incident. While searching Byers, Trooper Lytton located coffee filters, believed to have been used in a methamphetamine lab, that field tested positive for methamphetamine.

A probation search was conducted by the officers at the residence. During the search, a "one-pot" meth lab, articles used to manufacture meth, a hypodermic needle, and other drug paraphernalia were found.
