A Red Boiling Springs man and woman were arrested after allegedly driving a stolen vehicle from Kentucky, with the man also possessing methamphetamine.

Arlis Hewitt, 47, and Tiffany Key, 39, both face multiple charges following the incident, which occurred on Monday.

According to the arrest report, Lafayette Police Department officer Danny Fisher found a white 1991 Lexus driving without headlights on while on patrol, and he observed that the driver (Key) seemed nervous when he told her to turn her lights on.

Fisher then ran a status check on the vehicle's tag, which he said returned information that it was a stolen vehicle from Morgantown, Kentucky. After stopping the vehicle, Fisher observed Hewitt exiting the passenger side door and ran a status check on both occupants' driver's licenses.

The report states that Hewitt had a revoked license and that Key had a suspended license. In addition, Hewitt had an active warrant for his arrest from Barren County, Kentucky.

At that time, Fisher arrested both subjects and allegedly found a loaded syringe in Hewitt's pocket. The report states that Hewitt confessed to the syringe containing methamphetamine.

According to the report, Hewitt also said a man in Scottsville, Kentucky gave him the vehicle. Key said that she knew nothing about the vehicle except that it belonged to Hewitt.

The vehicle was impounded and towed by Sewell's Towing following the incident.

After transporting Hewitt and Key to the Macon County Jail, Fisher said he found a white powdery substance in the seat where he had placed Hewitt that was not previously in the patrol car.

According to the report, Fisher collected and sent a sample of the substance to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation for testing. The substance is believed to be methamphetamine.

Hewitt was charged with theft of property, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of Schedule II narcotics. His bond was set at $13,000, and his court date was slated for Nov. 28.

Key was charged with theft of property, violation of registration law and driving on a revoked or suspended license. Her bond was set at $11,500, and her court date was also slated for Nov. 28.
