Here is an audio report with Vernon County Sheriff John Spears on a meth lab bust in Hillsboro on Thursday. Spears says they served search warrants in two locations and there were meth labs and chemicals at both locations. The Vernon County Hazmat team had to decontaminate the sites as well the people who lived there. Spears describes the method used in the labs as the most dangerous way of producing the drug and the byproduct of that process can be fatal. Eight children and two elderly adults were taken in protective custody.
Sheriff Spears reports that the 4 people arrested on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine were Diane Frank, 41, of Hillsboro, Amber Brown, 39, of Hillsboro, and Todd Brown, 46, of Hillsboro. There was also an unnamed 19-year-old arrested, then later released without charges.
