CABELL COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Six people are behind bars after meth making materials were found in a home where two children also live.

The bust happened Tuesday afternoon at an apartment on Little Fudges Creek Road in Ona, W.Va.

The US Marshal's CUFFED Task Force and the Cabell County Sheriff's Office were executing a warrant for a probation violation for Cameron Lewis who lives in the apartment -- and found much more than they expected.

According to the criminal complaint, investigators found a glass jar that contained what they believe to be bi-layer liquid, several mason jars, coffee filters, muriatic acid and draino. All of those items are consistent with, according to the complaint, those used to produce meth.

Five other people were in the apartment at the time of the bust, and all of them are now facing charges.

Heather Pullen, 30, of Ona, is charged with two counts of exposure of children to meth manufacturing and operating or attempting to operate a clandestine drug lab.

Brandon Smith, 22, of Ona, is charged with operating or attempting to operate a clandestine drug lab and two counts of exposure of children to meth manufacturing.

Karen Black, 50, of Barboursville, is charged with operating or attempting to operate a clandestine drug lab.

Betty Fields, 23, of St. Albans, is charged with operating or attempting to operate a clandestine drug lab.

Brianna Black, 23, of Ona, is charged with being an accessory after the fact.

"Knowing that this type of activity is going on with children that live in this apartment and it would have continued to go on had we not found the materials and the fact that children are being subjected to this, that's what's alarming," said Cpl. Vincent with the Cabell County Sheriff's Department.

Lewis will be facing additional charges in addition to his probation violation.
