Three people are accused of making meth in an Alum Creek home where two small children were living.
Melinda Walker, Brett Abbott and Chad Harrison are charged with attempting to operate a meth lab, conspiracy to operate a meth lab and two counts of child endangerment, State Police said.
Troopers said they were helping a social worker with a follow-up call at the home Tuesday afternoon. When they arrived at the scene, the officers said they found an active meth lab.
Investigators said Walker's young son and daughter were inside the residence while the drug was being made.
The children are currently in the custody of their grandparents.
Three people are in custody after State Police said they discovered meth-making materials at a home in Kanawha County Tuesday afternoon.
Troopers made the discovery about noon at a home along Little Coal River Road in Alum Creek, Sgt. Michael Simpson of the West Virginia State Police said. Simpson added that there had previously been an active meth lab at that residence, but not at the time troopers responded Tuesday. That home has been boarded up.
