State Police said they arrested five people after discovering a meth lab inside a Cabell County apartment where young children were living.
Lisa Peterson, Oscar Peterson, Courtney Fleming, Brittany Smith and Michael Alford are all charged with attempting to operate a meth lab, and exposing children to meth, State Police said.
State Police received an anonymous tip about 8 p.m. Sunday in connection with a residence at the Maplewood Apartments on U.S. Route 60 near the Cabell-Putnam County line, said Sgt. Robert Perry of the West Virginia State Police Huntington detachment.
When troopers arrived, they said, they found all the ingredients used to make meth along with three juveniles. Those children have been placed with Child Protective Services.
Perry said investigators have linked these individuals to a Putnam County meth lab where a house exploded earlier this month. The Putnam County Sheriff's Department is investigating that incident.
