CLEVELAND - Cleveland authorities have charged a couple with drug trafficking and endangering children after a meth lab was found inside their home.
Ryan and Candice Stetzy will appear in court Friday to answer to the charges.
Three kids were removed from the Willowdale Avenue home after a meth lab was discovered Wednesday afternoon. The children, ages 4 1/2, 2 1/2, and 13 months, are with their grandmother.
Authorities said a family of five was being evicted when bailiffs discovered the drug paraphernalia and syringes scattered about. Police also said visible were items used to make meth.
Officers then evacuated the house and arrested the couple.
Neighbors said they suspected something odd, but never imagined a possible explosive lab next door.
