A Livingston couple wound up behind bars after police officers allegedly found methamphetamine while responding to a 911 call about a woman hidden in the wall of the couple's home Saturday.

Daniel Homan, 35, and Laura Hollis, 28, both of Livingston are both charged with possession of a controlled substance between one and four grams as well as possession of drug paraphernalia. Hollis has an additional public intoxication charge, and Homan was also charged with possession of marijuana.

According to Lt. Matt Parish with the Livingston Police Department, officers responded to the 200 block of Allie Bean Drive after they received a call from Hollis who stated there was another woman in the house.

"Hollis told officers that her boyfriend was hiding another woman in the wall of their home," Parish said.

Parish said when officers arrived Hollis appeared to be intoxicated and that they could see drugs and drug paraphernalia lying out in the open.

"Officers discovered a hole in the wall that Hollis allegedly knocked out while looking for this other woman," Parish said. "The officers looked in the wall and could not find a woman, but Hollis was insistent that she was there and told officers that she might have crawled out and gone under the house. Officers searched there as well but could not find the woman Hollis talked about."

"Homan and Hollis both gave officers two and a half grams of meth and marijuana was found on Homan when officers searched him prior to transport," Parish said.

Both are being held in the Polk County jail. Hollis has a $2,700 bond while Homan has a $17,100 bond.
