The Meigs County Sheriff's Department arrested two people after it said deputies found a meth lab and children in a home.
Deputies responded Thursday to a home on Salem School Lot Road in Langsville after receiving a complaint about a prowler, according to a news release from Sheriff Keith Wood.
When they got to the home, deputies said, they found Bobby Stacy, 28, outside with a firearm. Deputies ordered Stacy to put the weapon down and as deputies were investigating they found a three-vessel methamphetamine lab. Deputies also found chemicals used to make the drug and said children were also present at the home when the drug was being made.
Stacy and Bridget Humphrey were arrested and charged with illegal manufacturing methamphetamine, possessing chemicals used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine and endangering children. Stacy also is being charged with having a firearm while under disability.
The Meigs County Sheriff's Department was assisted by the Middleport Police Department, Athens County Sheriff's Office, Meigs County Department of Jobs and Family Services and the Salem Township Fire Department.
