APEX, N.C. (WNCN) – Authorities said an 18-month-old girl was found in an Apex residence Thursday along with a meth lab, authorities confirmed.
The Wake County Sheriff’s Office said a search warrant was served at a home in the 2600 block of Olive Chapel Road in Apex Thursday following complaints of drug activity.
Authorities said early Thursday evening it did not appear to be an active lab. Raleigh Hazmat was on the scene to decontaminate those who were at the house.
A total of seven adults were in the home along with the toddler.
“It’s bad enough for the adults to use the drugs number one but to put that child in the danger that making meth does. Its just amazing to me. I don’t understand it,” said Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison.
Four people were arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of precursors, maintaining a dwelling and possession of drug paraphernalia:
- Kevin Shaun Williams, 32
- Matthews Scott Godbold, 30
- Brittany Michelle Carter, 23
- Justin Roger Lee, 28
Tammy Eakers and her husband John live two doors down from the home. The Eakers said their aunt and uncle lived in the home until it was sold and that new owner is renting it out.
Family members of the Eakers alerted authorities to the strange activity they had seen at the home.
“The sheriff’s deputy that night said that there was something suspicious going on,” John Eakers said.
