PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) -  A drug investigation is launched in Russell County after authorities stumble across the remnants of a meth lab inside a Phenix City home.

Officials say they got an anonymous tip about residents reportedly cooking meth inside a house on Westside Drive off Highway 80.

When narcotics investigators got there, they say they found parts of a lab. They tell News Leader 9 it was a hazardous environment and they had to wear safety gear to clear out the house.

Three people were arrested. Now, two women and one man could face manufacturing charges and chemical endangerment of a child since police say there was a 7-year-old child inside.

We'll continue to bring you the latest in this case as it develops.
