Three children were found living in an Inverness home that was also serving as a meth lab, officials said.
The children were discovered Tuesday when members of the Citrus County Sheriff's Office searched a home on East Dawson Drive. Deputies had learned the house was being used to manufacture methamphetamine, officials said.
Investigators said they found several pieces of equipment and ingredients used to manufacture methamphetamine, as well as nearly three pounds of a substance that tested positive for methamphetamine.
The three children were turned over to the care of the Department of Children and Families. Officials said they had been in the presence of the active meth lab. However, none of the children were reportedly injured, officials said.
Three people were arrested during the search:
- Travis Savage is facing charges of possession of methamphetamine and paraphernalia.
- Christopher Adcock is facing charges of trafficking in methamphetamine, manufacturing methamphetamine in the presence of a child, possession of listed chemicals, and possession of paraphernalia.
- Alisa Donahue is facing charges of trafficking in methamphetamine, manufacturing methamphetamine in the presence of a child, possession of listed chemicals, and possession of paraphernalia.
Deputies said they are still looking for Harley Taylor, who has an active warrant out for violation of probation on the original charge of possession of methamphetamine.
Anyone with information regarding Taylor's whereabouts is asked to call the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office at 352-726-1121. To be eligible for a cash reward and remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-ANY-TIPS.
