Within just the past two weeks, three meth labs have been uncovered in the local area.
Two of them were located right in the downtown business districts of their respective communities.
In at least one of the raids, there were small children inside the residence. It makes one wonder what type of future these youngsters have ahead of them.
The first in the trio of raids happened in a home in downtown Lehighton.
One happened in a mobile home in the Nis Hollow area of Mahoning Township.
The third was discovered during a fire in an apartment in Tamaqua.
