SILEX — Police bust a suspected methamphetamine lab, and among those arrested is a 78-year-old woman.
A tip led authorities in eastern Missouri's Lincoln County to a home in Silex. Three people were arrested and charged with manufacturing meth — 44-year-old Von Watson, 34-year-old Craig Mumphard and 78-year-old Eva Fink. Fink was also charged with endangering the welfare of a child, and an infant was removed from the home.
Investigators say they found items used in making meth as well as heroin and a small-caliber handgun.
Authorities have not released details about the child's relationship with the suspects. The infant was placed in the custody of the Missouri Division of Family Services.
