BRECKINRIDGE CO., Ky. (WHAS11) -- A Breckinridge County, Ky. man is now behind bars after police say he met women on an online dating website, and then drugged them at dinner.

Robert Edwards, 40, of Cloverport, Ky. was arrested Friday in Rockport, Ind. in Spencer County.

Two women reported the incidents to police.

One woman told police her mouth began to burn after a meal brought by Edwards and she got drowsy. Another woman says she declined dinner but had a drink that Edwards brought her and she began to feel sick.

Edwards is charged with delivering a controlled substance, dispensing a drug illegally, criminal recklessness and theft.

He's at the Breckinridge County jail awaiting extradition to Spencer County.
