PUNTA GORDA, Fla. - A license plate check on a white Dodge Neon turned out it was a stolen car and led to two arrests and the discovery of meth Wednesday.

30-year-old Tyson Eugene Blake of Cape Coral and 23-year-old Kendra Ledbeth were arrested for grand theft auto and for possession of methamphetamine.

The deputy spotted the car at Marion Avenue and Osceola Drive, east of Punta Gorda, and began following it when he learned the car was stolen on March 8.  The owner from Port Charlotte said he let Blake borrow the car but he never returned it.

A search of the car found plastic baggies with meth
