Couple makes meth at library

Sarasota County Jail

A Florida couple has been arrested after police said they were caught cooking meth outside a public library.

Speed reading, anyone?

Authorities in Sarasota County received a tip Monday that someone appeared to be making meth near the Jacaranda Public Library in Venice, according to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.

An undercover officer responded and reported seeing 28-year-old Raymond King mixing liquids from items in his backpack.

Tiffany Stoltz, 28, was sitting on a mattress nearby, police said.

The couple is homeless, according to police, and King had been living at the library for about a month.

They now face felony counts of attempt to manufacture methamphetamine and possession of listed chemicals with intent to manufacture, the Bradenton Herald reported.
