The Summit County Drug Unit and Stow police conducted a search at a residence in the 1800 block Lillian Road yesterday afternoon where an active one-pot methamphetamine lab — commonly known as a “shake-and-bake” lab — chemicals and lab components were allegedly found in the basement of the residence. Methamphetamine waste and other related items also were reportedly found in the attached garage.

Other items allegedly seized by police included receipts for pseudoephedrine and cold compresses, a digital scale, plastic baggies containing an unidentified white powder, a plastic bottle with an unknown liquid and $379 in cash, according to the related police report.

Jason Little, 37 and Brandi Little, 28, both of Stow, were arrested and charged with illegal manufacturing of methamphetamine in the vicinity of a minor, illegal assembly of chemicals/components for the manufacturing of methamphetamine in the vicinity of a minor, and endangering children. Both individuals were booked into the Summit County Jail, according to the sheriff’s office.

Five children, ages 2, 8, 9, 11, and 12 were taken into custody by Summit County Children Services and were transported to Akron Children’s Hospital for evaluation.

The suspects have an arraignment scheduled for later today.
