Two people were arrested Wednesday night, Jan. 29, after Kentucky State Police troopers found a meth lab in an apartment on McDowell Lane in Bedford.
Troopers responded to a call of an assault at the apartments and made contact with 32-year-old David Wentworth and 39-year-old Rebecca Wentworth, both of Bedford.
