Six adults and two children had to be decontaminated at a local hospital after a methamphetamine lab was found in an Edinburgh home, police said.
Police arrested six people who were in the home and called the Indiana Department of Child Services to take the two children, ages 2 and 5, from the home, according to police.
Indiana State Police were called in to clean up the methamphetamine lab, and police found methamphetamine throughout the house, the report said.
Edinburgh police and Johnson County sheriff’s deputies went to the home at 647 Duncan St. at 4 p.m. Wednesday with a search warrant for drugs.
There they found a methamphetamine lab and multiple chemicals and items used to make methamphetamine, the report said. All of the people in the home were taken to Johnson Memorial Hospital to be decontaminated, the report said.
Resident Billy Ray Elliott, 47, 647 Duncan St., told police he didn’t know what many of the items were and that the chemicals were paint thinners he likes to play with. He told police he doesn’t sell methamphetamine.
