FLORENCE, KY (FOX19) - A Florence woman arrested in connection with a meth lab in the Oakbrook neighborhood has been sentenced to five years and jail and is facing more time for child endangerment.

Susan Cox, 43, has been charged with Trafficking of a Controlled Substance, which is a first degree felony.

Drug agents responded to a home in the 1700 block of Promontory Drive in on the evening of June 10th after a complaint of suspicious activity. After conducting surveillance at the home, agents followed Cox to an address in Elsmere, where she was arrested. She was taken to the Kenton County Detention Center.

Agents obtained a search warrant for the home on Promontory Drive, and found materials and evidence in the home that indicated that methamphetamine was manufactured there. The investigation showed that there were two children residing in the home, but they were not present at the time the search warrant was executed. The Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services was notified.

Cox will appear in court on the child endangerment charges on February 9th in Boone County.
