Joe Mahoney with the Mobile County Sheriff's Office said, "They're looking at serious felonies, here. They have manufacturing of a controlled substance, trafficking with the amount of product they had on hand, also, the chemical endangerment of a child is a felony. We take that very seriously."
Authorities said the child was 16-years-old.
METH TEXT PROGRAM CREDITED
Sheriff's officials said the group was arrested thanks to the Meth Text program, where people can anonymously report suspicious locations.
Mahoney said, "They'll go out to the location and do what we call 'knock and talk.' Go up to the house, talk to the homeowner, the resident there, see if there is anything that indicates there is drug activity. And if there is, we either gain consent to go in and search the premises, or if not we try to develop enough probable cause to get a search warrant for the residence."
The number to text in the meth text program is 839863 if you see suspicious activity.
