A Martin County husband and wife were arrested Thursday night on drug charges.
Deputy Aaron Blevins of the Martin County Sheriff’s Department went to a residence on Gordon Maynard Road in Inez after receiving an anonymous complaint of drug activity.
37-year-old Joseph Alexander and his wife, 39-year-old Carla Alexander, had been staying in a bedroom of that home.
Upon a search of that room, several used syringes were found in a makeup bag.
A clear container was also found with what is believed to have been meth and Suboxone inside.
Both Joseph and Carla were arrested and are facing multiple drug charges; they were taken to the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center in Paintsville.
Deputy Blevins of the Martin County Sheriff’s Department continues to investigate.
