SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) - Two Orange County residents have pleaded not guilty to planting weapons and drugs in a woman’s truck in an effort to get her arrested.

Jennifer Michele Beale and Kevin Brown face a variety of charges including conspiracy, false imprisonment and making a false report. The two Laguna Hills residents were arrested last week.

The Orange County Register reported Monday (https://bit.ly/1qWMQWp) that the 37-year-old Beale and the 42-year-old Brown are accused of planting a BB gun, a 12-inch hunting knife and methamphetamine in the bed of a truck belonging to an acquaintance.

Prosecutors declined to comment on what allegedly motivated Beale and Brown to try to get the woman arrested.

The defendants are next due in court April 26 for a pretrial hearing.
