The smell of chemicals on a 12-year-old Stow student Tuesday sent authorities to a home in the city where authorities found methamphetamine being made.
Jason Little, 37, and Brandi Little, 28, were arrested on meth and child endangering charges. They were being held in the Summit County Jail.
Sheriff’s officials said they were contacted by Stow police after Lakeview School officials noticed the child’s clothing smelled of chemicals and suspected it was because the drug was being made at the boy’s home in the 1800 block of Lillian Road.
Members of the Summit County Drug Unit searched the home and found a methamphetamine lab, chemicals and lab components in the basement. More meth-related items were found in the attached garage.
Five children from the residence — ages 2, 8, 9, 11, and 12 — were taken into custody by Summit County Children’s Services. The were examined at Akron Children’s Hospital.
