CHILLICOTHE -- Three people are behind bars after a Thursday morning meth lab bust, as police attempt to crack down on a growing problem.
Police raided a home at 87 E. Rose St. at approximately 8 a.m., and found chemicals and equipment used to make methamphetamine.
Hannah Bean, Anthony Hart, and Michael Lemming were arrested at the home. Officers said the house was typical of those containing meth labs, with trash littering the floors and very little furniture.
The suspects are scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
A neighbor told ABC 6/FOX 28 people visited the house on a near constant basis, sometimes with babies in tow.
Police said they received several tips from neighbors who could smell chemicals inside the house, and were afraid the meth lab would spark a fire that could damage nearby homes.
Eleven meth labs have been busted in Chillicothe in recent months.
