Deputies said they found cooking materials that tested positive for meth in the bathtub and under the sink.

Brandy Crane, 38, was arrested for manufacturing meth, possessing meth and cruelty toward a child.

“It’s kind of scary that it’s right next door,” Chelsea Sugart said. “Just myself being a parent, I would never put my child in danger like that.”

Shugart said she saw a worker from the Department of Children and Families and law enforcement surrounding the home during the meth operation bust and spoke with a deputy to find out what happened.

“I said, ‘Is there something I should be concerned about because I live right next door with my two kids,’ and he said it was a suspected meth lab going on,” Shugart said.

Deputies discovered the suspected meth operation after checking on the welfare of a 15-year-old girl in the house after an allegation was made that the teen was in danger.

The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office said the meth operation was known was one pot, meaning it was the smallest and cheapest way to produce the meth.

DCF said the 15-year-old was given medical check-ups and was put into the custody of her father and is now safe.

DCF is continuing to investigate the incident.
