SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Nine people were arrested Tuesday morning after the group allegedly broke into a vacant home and cooked meth around two children, according to the Springfield Police Department.

The group was made up of six men and three women.  Police say an anonymous tip led them to discover the meth lab in a house up for rent at 929 W. Mt. Vernon St.

One of the arrested women had her two young girls, ages 4 and 6, according to the police department.  The girls were later put in the custody of their grandmother.

 Police say they believe the owner of the rental property was unaware the house was being used to cook meth.

Some in the group have been formally charged by the Greene County Prosecutor’s Office.

According to online court documents, Shane Minor, 45, Shayla Halloway, 36, and Ronald Hubbard, 44, of Springfield have been charged with one count of burglary in the first degree and one count of manufacture/possession of a controlled substance.

Megan Caldwell, 24, has been charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child in the second degree.

Charges for the remaining five arrested at the meth lab bust were not available at the time of publication.
