A husband and wife were arrested Thursday afternoon for allegedly manufacturing a spice lab.  

 

Curtis and April Guenther of 683 Mike Parra Road were each charged with possession of a controlled substance and attempting to manufacture a controlled substance after agents with the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics and the Lowndes County Narcotics Unit executed a search warrant on the couple's home. 

 

Spice, or synthetic marijuana, is a mixture of herbs sprayed with chemicals laced with acetone.  

 

The Guenthers are currently in the custody of the Lowndes County Adult Detention Center, awaiting bond.
