PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) -

McCracken County Sheriff's deputies busted a Paducah couple accused of selling crystal meth and putting their children's lives at risk.

Becky Green, 26, and Thomas Green, 35, were arrested for trafficking methamphetamine, possession of marijuana, and 2nd degree wanton endangerment.

According to a detective, the department had been watching the couple living in an apartment at 1110 Old North Friendship Road for about a month.

On Wednesday night, they got a warrant and went inside.

They found 20 baggies of crystal meth along with marijuana and several other prescription drugs all hidden in a swing that was being used by a two-month-old infant.

There were three other small children in the house as well.

After the arrests, the children were released to other family members.
