Sheriff: Five children found in home with active meth lab

We've been seeing more cases lately of children in homes with active meth labs.

Now, Laurel County Sheriff's Deputies report finding five children at a home, where an active meth making operation was taking place.

Late Friday night, deputies say they got a complaint of a possible meth lab at a home on Fisherman's Cove Road.

Once there, deputies say they detected a chemical type odor associated with making meth. They say they later found a meth lab inside, along with the children.

Once there, deputies arrested 28-year-old Roberta Petro and charged her with making meth and possessing ingredients to make the drug.

Petro is also charged with five counts of endangering the welfare of a minor.

The children were examined at a hospital, then turned over to social services.
