(Price-AP) -- A Utah Highway Patrol dispatcher and her husband have been arrested on drug charges.

Police say the arrests come after a six-month investigation.

The original target of the Carbon County Metropolitan Drug Task Force was the husband, not the 61-year-old dispatcher.

But Price City police Lieutenant Kevin Drolc says after several months, investigators determined that the woman likely knew that her husband was buying and selling drugs.

The couple were arrested at their home in Price. Drolc says officers found small quantities of methamphetamine and marijuana and several firearms.

The couple were released from the Carbon County Jail after posting a 20-thousand dollar bail. They have not been formally charged.

The dispatcher has been placed on administrative leave.
