Comments Off on Parents arrested after ‘shake and bake’ meth bottle found next to sleeping toddler, police say

A Boscobel couple was arrested Saturday night after a Grant County  deputy found a “shake and bake” methamphetamine bottle next to their 2-year-old  daughter sleeping in the back seat of their pickup truck, authorities  reported.

Patrick Hogan, 30, and Deanna Hogan, 29, were arrested at about 6:10 p.m.  Saturday on East Oak Street in Boscobel, according to a news release from  the Grant County Sheriff’s Office.

The meth lab in a bottle was active, so the area was cordoned  off while the Boscobel EMS, fire and police departments responded to the  scene.

Portable “shake and bake” meth labs have been known to explode, and  the reacting chemicals in the bottle are toxic.

A search of the pickup truck also revealed two loaded semi-automatic  handguns.

Patrick Hogan was tentatively charged with possession of methamphetamine,  manufacture of methamphetamine, being a felon in possession of a firearm and  child neglect.

Deanna Hogan was tentatively charged with carrying a concealed weapon  and child neglect.

The 2-year-old girl was released to a family member and was taken to Boscobel  Hospital for evaluation.
