What started out as a Child Protective Services case turned into a much larger ordeal when officials discovered a meth lab.

At around 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 23, North Liberty Police were called to the 66,300-block of Tamarack Rd. There, officers discovered an active meth lab inside a camper where two young children—ages six and seven—were living their mother and step-father.

Investigators say the woman who owns the property has been helping the family out by allowing them stay in the camper and was unaware of the meth-making operation.

Officers from the Indiana State Police Clandestine Lab Team were called in to clean up and remove the meth lab. The step-father was arrested at the scene while the children’s mother was nowhere to be found.

The two kids have since been taken into protective custody.
