FALKVILLE, Ala. (WAAY) - Five people were arrested and two children taken from a home after deputies said they found evidence a meth lab had burned in the house.
According to Morgan County Sheriff Ana Franklin, deputies were making a welfare check on two children at a home on Holmes Drake Road Wednesday and found a one-pot meth lab on the property. Morgan County Drug Task Force agents obtained a search warrant and found evidence of a fire that appeared to have been caused by a failed meth cook. Franklin said the homeowner, Lucas Speegle, 31, also had burn injuries.
Franklin said two other meth labs and materials to make meth also were found in the home.
Morgan County Department of Human Resources workers took the two children, ages 3 years and 4 months, into foster care. Franklin said they determined the younger child had been in the home at the time of the fire.
Speegle was charged with two counts of manufacturing meth, possession of meth and possession of felony drug paraphernalia. Joseph Speegle, 31, faces the same charges. Their bonds were set at $505,000.
Sarah Speegle, 35, was charged manufacturing meth, possession of meth and drug endangerment of a child. Her bond was set at $402,500.
Mary Lou Speegle, 20, and Maygan Stover, 24, were charged with loitering in a drug house. Their bonds were set at $300.
