Two people arrested and three children were taken into protective custody after Evansville police discovered a meth lab inside a home.

Jeffery Adams and Ashley Dewitt were arrested late Monday night.

They're charged with child neglect and dealing methamphetamine. 

Investigators say an anonymous tip led the Evansville Vanderburgh Drug Task Force to the home on Henning Avenue around 8:30 p.m.

After obtaining a search warrant, officers say they found a one pot meth lab on top of a water heater in the basement. 

Three children, under the age of ten, were taken to the hospital as a precaution and are now with child protection services.

Adams and Dewitt are scheduled to appear in court Tuesday morning.
