A Kalona couple was arrested Wednesday for housing Roger Schropp, a man they allegedly knew was manufacturing methamphetamine, Johnson County sheriff's deputies said.

Scott Charles Carlson, 47, was charged with aiding and abetting, a Class B felony. Kathy Sue Carlson, 48, was charged with accessory to a felony, an aggravated misdemeanor.

Reports said a narcotics search warrant was executed at the Carlson's home, yielding evidence consistent with meth production. Deputies said Scott Carlson later admitted to assisting and learning how to manufacture the drug from codefendant Schropp.

He also reportedly admitted to purchasing pseudoephedrine, lithium batteries, camping fuel, salt, and cold packs for the purpose of making meth.

Deputies said Kathy Carlson allowed Schropp to live in her shed, though she believed he was continuing to make meth.
