WILLOW SPRING, N.C. (WNCN) – Three small children were found Thursday in a house being used as a meth lab on Silver Spring Court in Willow Spring.

Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison said the meth lab was discovered after a tip and a search warrant was executed Thursday at 9:15 a.m. Authorities had been watching the house since October.

The three children are ages 4, 6 and 8.

“I’m not a happy camper when I see three kids in a home with a meth lab,” Harrison said. “I’m not a happy camper when I see a meth lab in general but especially when there are children in involved.”

The SBI, Raleigh Police and a decontaminant trailer are all on scene.  The children will be going through the decontaminant trailer to make sure they are all fine, as will the adults.

Five adults were arrested and charged, the Wake County Sheriff’s Office said.

  • Michael Curtis Jones, 29, of 6208 Silver Spring Ct., was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine precursors, maintaining a dwelling, child abuse, possession of drug paraphernalia.
  • Jessica Jenny Nunez-Jones, 29, of 6208 Silver Spring Ct., was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine precursors, maintaining a dwelling, child abuse, possession of drug paraphernalia.
  • Charles Scott Jones, 33, of 1817 Bowling Rd. Fuquay-Varina, was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine precursors, maintaining a dwelling, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
  • Chelsea Lynn Nye, 28, was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine precursors, maintaining a dwelling, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
  • Jason Neil Wall, 33, of 325 C.P Stewart Rd. Lillington, was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine precursors, maintaining a dwelling, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The three children are ages 4, 6 and 8 and have been taken to Child Protective Services.

“For the life of me, I don’t understand this,” Harrison said. “It’s just sorriness.”

One neighbor, Bridget Roberts, recalled seeing the children often.

“The kids are always playing outside,” she said. “You just wouldn’t think anything like that was going on on the inside.”

But another neighbor, Mike Hudson, said it was odd that “a lot of adults lived in here.”

To him, that “didn’t make sense when you live in a small house like that.”

There were no injuries reported.
