A rural Monroeville woman was arrested recently on a pair of drug charges.
Huron County Sheriff's Detective Sgt. Josh Querin said the investigation centered around the residence located at 2205 Dogtown Road.
"We had received information a meth lab and drug abuse were taking place at the residence," Querin said. "This is a home where several young children were also residing."
Lindsay M. Salyers, 29, was arrested.
"At the residence, we located evidence of crack cocaine abuse and methamphetamine abuse, along with prescription pill abuse," Querin said.
"There were also three children, ages, 4, 7 and 8, present," he added. "There is a 4-month-old who stays there from time to time, but who was not there at the time."
Huron County Children's Services was contacted and sent a representative to the scene.
"The removal of the children was conducted," Querin said.
Querin and Detective Eric Bardar conducted the investigation.
Sheriff Dane Howard, Chief Deputy Ted Patrick, Maj. Mike Cooksey and Monroeville Police Officer Troy Kimball all assisted at the scene Thursday.
"The condition of the house was deplorable," Querin said. "Add in the drug abuse taking place and it was not a good situation for children to be in."
Querin said deputies appreciate anonymous tips from residents.
"Those led to a quick resolution of this case," he said. "And, we were able to put the children in a safe environment.
"We do expect more charges to be filed and additional arrests to be made in this case," Querin said.
