MORGANTON, N.C. — A methamphetamine lab was found in a Morganton day care Tuesday, Morganton officials said.
The meth lab was found in the basement of a day care called Kit Kat’s Place Family Child Care, according to Sgt. Rick Hasson with the Morganton Public Safety Department.
“This is the first one I’ve ever seen at a day care, and I hope it’s the only one I ever see at a day care,” Hasson said. “This is not good. It’s very dangerous.”
Katrina Epperson and Chris Webb were arrested in connection with the case and charged with manufacturing methamphetamine. Officers said they tracked down the two suspects at the home by using the log books people must sign when buying pseudoephedrine, a common ingredient in meth.
Epperson and Webb had their first court appearances on Wednesday morning in Morganton. They both requested court-appointed attorneys and remain jailed under $25,000 bonds.
There were no children inside the day care when the meth lab was discovered, but officials said the business was licensed.
“(The license was) actually renewed effective (Tuesday),” Hasson said.
Agents from the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation were called to the home to help clean up the lab. They donned hazardous materials suits and sifted through trash at the home.
Neighbors said they were shocked by the allegations.
“It’s hard to believe that someone could do that with children in the house,” Wayne Poteat said.
Officials left a warning sign at the home, alerting people to the possible dangers of chemicals
