Three people are in custody and eight children are safe after they were rescued from a suspected methamphetamine making operation in Hillsboro in Vernon County.
The Vernon County Sheriff's office arrested Diane Franke, 41, Amber Brown, 39, and Todd Brown, 46, all from Hillsboro. They are facing charges related to manufacturing methamphetamine. Officers arrested a 19-year-old female but released her without charges.
"The hardest part for everybody is the children, they're young...that's the hardest part to think people would expose their own children to these type of living conditions and dangerous chemicals manufacturing and that stuff that's involved with these drugs," added Sheriff Spears.
Johnson said, "In the scheme of things in meth labs...this is one of the more dangerous methods to manufacture methamphetamine."
