FAIRFIELD, OH (FOX19) - Five people were arrested after Butler County Sheriffs found a meth lab in Fairfield Friday evening.

The Butler County Sheriff's Undercover Regional Narcotics Task force (BURN) received information about a possible meth lab at the 8200 block of Seward Road. After gathering information through the last month, officials executed a search warrant for the home and discovered an active lab inside a detached garage.

Five people were arrested in the home. Those charged include 37-year-old Adam Akel and 29-year-old Amy Eckstein, the residents of the home. They were both charged with manufacturing meth, assembly of chemicals, and child endangering.

Also arrested was 38-year-old Dewey Colebank, who was charged with possession of meth and child endangering, and 22-year-old Arnold Lynn Jr., who is charged with manufacturing meth, assembly of chemicals and child endangering.

Natasha Prickett was at the home and arrested on a warrant.

Fairfield City life squad was on standby status for several hours while the meth lab was cleaned up. The Sheriff's Office Emergency Services/ Bomb squad also responded to the home. The scene was cleared in the early morning hours.

Several ounces of finished Methamphetamine, a 9mm handgun, a stolen Harley Davidson motorcycle and counterfeit money were seized from the home.

Three children under the age of five were in the home at the time of the arrests. The youngest child was only 13 days old. Information given to investigators at the scene revealed that the children were present while meth was being smoked. Butler County Children's Services responded to the scene to remove the children from the home.
