A Casper couple was arrested after a medical assist call led to a police investigation.
According to arrest paperwork, police responded to a home on East 18th street, late Monday morning. Officers had responded to the scene to assist other agencies in regard to a person going in-and-out of consciousness, as a result of drug use.
The person was transported to an area hospital, however police say that a subsequent investigation of the home, led to the discovery of both marijuana and methamphetamine.
23-year-old Matthew W. Mitchell and 22-years-old Makayla Helms-Pickett were arrested after allowing police to search the home where the couple lives, police saying that both suspects admitted to having marijuana in the house, but nothing else.
Paperwork says that officers did find suspected marijuana in the home as well as some paraphernalia, officers also finding a substance that tested presumptive positive for methamphetamine under the mattress where the couple slept. Police say that the suspects refused to say who the methamphetamine belonged to.
Both suspects were both charged with single counts of Controlled Substance Possession and Controlled Substance Possession Methamphetamine.
Charges are subject to change, and the court considers all suspects innocent unless otherwise proven.
