A pair of Stow residents face charges stemming from the discovery of the methamphetamine lab inside of a home.
Police were called to the 4000 block of Burton Drive around 4 p.m. Thursday to check on the welfare of residents living inside of the home.
Police say the homeowner let officers inside where they discovered a man and a woman in the smoke-filled basement that smelled of chemicals.
Officers found a makeshift meth lab. The fire department was called to help remove the smoke and fumes from the home.
Sarah M. Bimshas, 26, and Joseph D. Papp, 34, face charges including illegal manufacturing of drugs and illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs.
An 8-year-old child was removed from the home and placed in the custody of Summit County Children Services.
