Yulee, Fla. – Two men and a woman were arrested Thursday night on drug possession and manufacturing charges after a meth lab was discovered in a Callahan home along with five children ages 6 to 16, according to the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office.
Joel Anthony Anderson, 36; Brandy Nicole Cornish, 33; and David Earl Campbell, 47, were all charged with manufacturing or producing a meth lab, possession of meth, possession of unlawful chemicals and possession of drug paraphernalia, Sheriff Bill Leeper said. Anderson and Cornish were also charged with child neglect, Leeper said.
Deputies received a tip of a possible drug laboratory in a home on Rhoden Lane and went to investigate at 7:20 p.m., Leeper said.
“They found evidence of a meth lab just beginning and also found one gram of meth in the house,” Leeper said. “There was evidence of past cooking and they had just started to begin some more.”
The state’s Department of Children and Families was called in after the children were found in the home, and they are being cared for by a family member, Leeper said.
