The execution of arrest warrants Thursday night in Eva led to the discovery of a meth lab and a 2-year-old child that had been exposed to it.

The Morgan County Drug Task Force went to 1345 Daniels Chapel Road in Eva to execute two arrest warrants.

Agents had been advised about the residence over the past couple of weeks of possible drug activity and that a child may possibly be at the residence. Deputies had responded the previous evening in reference to possible drug activity and that a child was present. Deputies were unable to locate anyone at the residence.

Agents observed drug paraphernalia and made contact with three adults and a 2-year-old within the residence. Agents obtained a search warrant and located pseudoephedrine, chemicals and equipment used in the manufacturing process to produce methamphetamine as well as drug paraphernalia items such as syringes and smoking devices throughout the residence.

Morgan County DHR placed the child in the care of a family member. All four suspects and the child were decontaminated. The suspects were then transported to the Morgan County Jail.
