Five people from Lucasville are in custody in the Scioto County Jail - accused of running a meth lab.
Investigators say the investigation started after David Collins, 29, violated his probation and a search team was formed to find him.
Narcotics units teamed up with the Scioto County Probation Department and they say they found him at the site of the meth lab in Minford.
Deputies say several others were also found at the site and they all took off but were eventually arrested and the lab was cleaned up.
Along with Collins, the others arrested and charged include Joseph Hagler, 31, Heather Howard, 27, Tony Martin, 39, and Michael Flannery, 39.
Collins, Hagler, and Howard are charged with first-degree felonies of illegal manufacture of methamphetmaine within 100 feet of a child.
All of the cases will be presented to a Scioto County Grand Jury.
