Two people were arrested and a 5-year-old girl was placed with relatives after police say they uncovered a methamphetamine lab inside an East Akron home.
The raid Monday afternoon on Paxton Avenue revealed the 42nd working meth lab so far this year in Akron, police said.
Jessica Lawson, 24, and Kory Huffman, 29, were arrested Monday inside their Paxton Avenue home following a raid by police. Officers say they went to the house, located off Canton Road, about 2 p.m. amid complaints that meth was being made inside the residence.
The couple is charged with illegal manufacturing of methamphetamine, illegal assembly of chemicals, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Police say the couple’s daughter was home during the raid. She is now being cared for by a relative.
