Alliance meth lab bust involves Easter candy, toys, children

ALLIANCE, Ohio - Another meth lab was busted in northeast Ohio, this time involving Easter candy, toys, children and a dangerous mix of explosive materials.

Alliance police discovered the meth lab in the 800 block of S. Union Avenue over Easter weekend.

Local drug store workers reported the "suspicious" man to police after he bought supplies known for making meth. Authorities then stopped the man at a nearby gas station to ask him a few questions.

Detectives said that's when they were given permission to search the man's car. They also said the man, Jason Gorby, told them there was a working meth lab inside his home where two children live.

The children were taken from the home and police said they are safe with other family members.

Gorby faces a laundry list of drug charges and booked into the Stark County Jail.

Easter candy and toys were found next to the meth lab in the garage, according to police.

The meth bust is about five blocks away from Alliance High School and about a mile from Mount Union College.

Alliance police posted the meth lab bust developments on its Facebook page.
