STOW, Ohio — Five children have been removed from their parents’ Ohio home after authorities found an active meth lab.
The Summit County Sheriff’s Office says they became involved when Lakeview School called them about a 12-year-old student that had an “odor of chemicals.” Authorities suspected the child’s parents were making methamphetamine and searched the family’s home.
Deputies found an active meth lab and chemicals used to make meth in the home’s basement. In the garage, they found the waste byproducts from the meth lab.
Thirty-seven-year-old Jason Little and 28-year-old Brandi Little are now charged with illegal manufacturing of methamphetamine in the vicinity of a minor, illegal assembly of chemicals/components for the manufacturing of methamphetamine in the vicinity of a minor and child endangering.
They are being held in the Summit County Jail.
The five children living in the home, ages 2, 8, 9, 11, and 12 have been taken into the custody of Summit County Children’s Services.
