Comments Off on Detectives: Children lived inside Vero Beach meth house

Couple faces child endangerment, drug charges


VERO BEACH, Fla. — Two children lived inside a Vero Beach home where authorities said methamphetamine was being produced.

Indian River County Sheriff’s Office and Drug Enforcement Administration agents served a search warrant Tuesday morning at the house on 102nd Avenue.

Detectives said an anonymous tip prompted the monthlong investigation that led to the discovery of a meth lab.

Investigators said George and Nichole Tribble were taken into custody, and their two children were at school at the time.

A neighbor said there was always a lot of activity coming from the couple’s garage.

“It was curtained off, and I always wondered why,” said the neighbor, who asked not to be identified. “Couldn’t figure that out. And (I) would see a grown man coming from behind the curtain.”

The couple faces charges of meth possession and manufacturing, as well as child endangerment.
