HARTLY, Del. - Two people have been arrested, after Police allegedly found a meth lab in their Hartly home. Delaware State Police Kent County Drug Unit and Governor's Task Force arrived at the Minnie Pratt Lane home, where they were going to investigate methamphetamine manufacturing.

At the home, Troopers say they found 45-year-old Dixie Cunningham in the driveway, where they asked her if her boyfriend, 39-year-old Paul Winters, who is wanted, was at home. Cunningham reportedly told officials that Winters wasn't home, but they apparently found him in a shower in the home, and took him into custody after a reported short struggle. Police say, during that search, they also found a one-pot methamphetamine lab.

DNREC was called in, and they safely handled the situation, by dismantling the alleged lab. According to the report, a juvenile was found at the home, and was turned over to a family member.

Winters and Cunningham were both charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, endangering the welfare of a child, and possession of drug paraphernalia. Winters was additionally charged with resisting arrest, and is being held on $7,750 bond. Cunningham was additionally charged with hindering prosecution, and released on bail.
