On the afternoon of May 16, a citizen flagged down a Henry County Sheriff’s deputy to report a domestic dispute in a parking lot at 1700 East Washington Street in Mt. Pleasant.

The deputy stopped the couple as they attempted to leave the area, and discovered the couple had protective orders against each other.

Rourke also had outstanding warrants.

As the officer continued the investigation, the couple was found in possession of one-pot meth precursors.

Meyers was also observed trying to hide drug paraphernalia under a vehicle during the investigation.

Sheriff’s deputies and Mt. Pleasant police officers then searched a local hotel room registered to the couple.

They discovered additional evidence of a one-pot meth lab.

Both are being held at the Henry County Jail.
