Two people were arrested on a search warrant which netted eight meth labs Friday afternoon.

The Athens Messenger reports, Jeffrey Turner, 45, and Lisa Turner, 41, both of 4376 W. Wilson Road in Athens, were arrested and charged with manufacturing methamphetamine.

A 4-year-old child was also found inside the residence, and is now under the care of Athens County Childrens Services.

"They are still processing everything they've got," Sheriff Patrick Kelly, adding that a street value of the meth was not yet available.

The Turners were arrested after the Narcotics Enforcement Team executed a search warrant on the home. Eight "one pot" meth labs were found, according to the sheriff's office.

Detectives dismantled and neutralized the labs and Waterloo Volunteer Fire Department and Athens County Emergency Medical Services assisted at the scene.

Both suspects were transported to the Southeastern Ohio Regional Jail, but bond was unspecified as of Friday afternoon.
