AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) - What neighbors were calling a "foul, obnoxious odor" led police to arrest two people on multiple drug charges in south Amarillo Thursday.

In the 3800 block of South Ong Street, several people reported smelling something burning in a garage belonging to one of their neighbors.

When they arrived to the home located at 3812 Ong, officers say they spoke with 56 year-old Ricky Dan Allee and 59 year-old Vickie Lynn Daley and got permission to search the garage.

Inside the garage, they report finding evidence that the smell was coming from someone burning insulation off of copper wires.

Officers then secured a search warrant and checked inside the home, where they say they found methamphetamines, marijuana, prescription drugs and drug paraphernalia.

Both people inside the home were taken to the Randall County jail on multiple drug charges.

Allee is charged with possession of a controlled substance in a drug free zone, possession of dangerous drugs, possession of marijuana in a drug free zone, and possession of narcotic paraphernalia.

Daley is charged with possession of marijuana in a drug free zone.
