LYNN, AR (KAIT) – A Region 8 couple is being held on multiple charges after investigators say they found meth and guns in their home.

Ralph Kenneth Lewis, 59, and Tiffany Strohl, 33, both of Lynn are charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, felon in possession of firearms, and simultaneous possession of drugs and firearms.

The two were arrested after Lawrence County sheriff's deputies received information about "lots of drug activity" at the pair's home, Sheriff Jody Dotson said.

When deputies checked the couple, they learned Lewis was on probation and suspension of sentence (SIS).  Strohl also showed to be on SIS.

Deputies then went to the couple's home and conducted an SIS search.

In addition to meth, Dotson said officers found long guns, handguns and several items of drug paraphernalia in the home.

Lewis and Strohl were arrested and taken to the Lawrence County Jail to await a bond hearing.
