Man and woman arrested in Scottsboro motel room for drugs

Law enforcement took two people into custody at a Scottsboro motel Friday.

The arrests followed a drug bust that stemmed from a month-long investigation.

Kenneth Gifford and his girlfriend Stephanie Ledwell went to the Jackson County Jail.

Investigators say they found drugs, paraphernalia, and parts of a meth lab.

Authorities claim Gifford also violated probation. They say he tried destroying evidence by flushing a hypodermic needle down the motel room toilet.
