3 kids found living in meth lab, police say

CIRCLEVILLE, Ohio — Authorities say three young children were found living in a central Ohio home where two methamphetamine labs were operating.

Police in Circleville, south of Columbus, said the drug operations were found Thursday night when officers were assisting with a probation check. Police said a man and a woman at the home admitted they were making meth there.

WBNS-TV reports that children ages 3, 5 and 10 were living in the home and were exposed to the chemicals. They were removed by social services.

The mother and her boyfriend, who is the father of two of the children, were arrested.
