An Akron couple pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges stemming from the operation of one of the largest meth labs in the city’s history.

While Jeffrey Fowler and Amanda Wilcox were operating this lab, their three children, ages 1, 5 and 8, were inside the Congo Street home, according to prosecutors.

Fowler, 34, pleaded guilty in Summit County Common Pleas Court to the illegal manufacture of drugs and three counts of child endangering. Wilcox, 31, pleaded guilty to illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs and three counts of child endangering.

Akron police officers responded to a suspected meth lab on Congo Street in September and found 100 2-liter bottles of chemicals used to manufacture meth, as well as an active meth lab.

Fowler and Wilcox lived at the home with their three children.

The children are in the custody of Summit County Children Services.

Judge Lynn Callahan will sentence Wilcox at 8:30 a.m. Feb. 17 and Fowler at 8:30 a.m. March 9.
