HARTLY, Del.- Delaware State Police have arrested a couple on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine inside a Hartly home.

Police said 39-year-old Paul E. Winters and his girlfriend, 45-year-old Dixie J. Cunningham, were arrested Tuesday by task force officers who went to their home on the unit block of Minnie Pratt Lane to investigate possible meth production.

Police said that when officers arrived, Cunningham was in the driveway and lied to them about whether Winters was inside. He was found hiding in a shower, according to investigators. Police noted that Winters has outstanding warrants.

Police said the home was evacuated after they found an active one-pot meth lab and that environmental crews contained the volatile hazardous chemicals used to make the drug.

Police also say a juvenile was found in the home and is now staying with a relative. Winters was charged with manufacturing meth, endangering the welfare of a child, resisting arrest and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was ordered held in the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center on $7,750 cash bail.

Cunningham was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, endangering the welfare of a child, hindering prosecution and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was released on $8,250 unsecured bail.
