MILFORD TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - A Butler County woman was indicted after her two-year-old son tested positive for meth after a man was accused of running a meth lab while two children were inside a home in March.

Deputies and the Butler County Undercover Regional Narcotics Taskforce (B.U.R.N) initially arrested Michael Murray, 36, on Scott Road near Shannon Drive after discovering chemicals used to manufacture meth inside the residence on March 18.

Authorities said emergency crews were staged near the scene as a precaution if one of the tanks used to make the drugs exploded.

“I am absolutely tired of drug dealers putting children and innocent people in danger at the price of their own personal gain," said Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones. "The drugs are bad enough but to not care about the innocent lives in the mix is disgusting to me."

B.U.R.N. agents along with the help of the Children's Services presented to a Butler County grand jury an additional case against Caroline Lissal who was also at the residence during the search.  She was indicted Wednesday for endangering children and permitting drug abuse, as a result of her 2-year-old son having tested positive for meth, officials say.
