Children living in house next to busted WV meth lab

Early Saturday Mingo county West Virginia authorities busted a meth lab in Ragland. Sherriff Lonnie Hannah said deputies got a tip and arrived around 1 in the morning and found six suspects in the process of making meth in an outbuilding near Mystery Mountain Road. The sheriff says Tara Evans is the mother of a 16-year-old who lives in the house and neighbors say the 16-year-old is the mother of a 16-month-old baby who also lives there. In addition, there was a 7-year-old boy in the house at the time of the arrests. The kids are all now living with grandparents. Arvil Runyon, who also lives at the home, and Evans both face three counts of child neglect, three counts of exposure to a meth lab, and operating a meth lab.
