WALNUT RIDGE, AR (KAIT)- Monday afternoon a man and woman were arrested in Walnut Ridge after officers found items used to make meth in their car during a traffic stop.

Hoxie Police Chief Glen Smith says his office received a tip that Bob Castleman and Rebecca Spray were buying ingredients to make meth.  Hoxie Police along with Walnut Ridge Police stopped the couple after their vehicle crossed the center lane.

Chief Smith says Spray told officers that they could search the car because she was on probation.  According to officers, they found rubber tubing and four 48-pack of pseudoephedrine in the vehicle.

Spray and Castleman are charged with possession with intent to manufacture meth and are currently being held in the Lawrence County Jail.
