The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office in Asheboro, North Carolina say they've found a disturbing scene where a methamphetamine lab was in the vicinity of two children.
According to investigators a husband a wife duo of meth-making criminals, 34-year-old Justin David Sherman and 37-year-old Anita Jane Sherman have been taken into custody after Deputies served a search warrant at their home.
A drug investigation led to the search that happened around 3:30 p.m. Detectives found several "one pot" or "shake and bake" meth labs and components used to manufacture the drug.
During that execution of the warrant, authorities discovered multiple methamphetamine laboratories as well as the various components necessary to manufacture the dangerous drug.
The worst part, according to Deputies, is that two small children were present inside the home which was clearly contaminated from the constant barrage of highly toxic chemicals being used to produce the narcotic.
Both of the Shermans are now facing felony charges for manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, and misdemeanor child abuse charges in relation to the crimes occurring in the presence of their children.
They are currently being detained in the Randolph County Jail with a bond of $500,000.00 each and the children have been removed from the home as per the Department of Children's Services.
