FRANKLIN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Authorities in Franklin County arrested several people during two separate meth busts at an apartment complex.

On Monday, drug unit investigators went to Eastside Plaza Apartments to check on information about people who were making methamphetamine. Investigators found three one-pot meth labs, two acid generators, two backpacks filled with meth ingredients, and meth oil.

The agents arrested Linda Leuheisel, Dewayne Lolley, Amber Batchelor, Cory McIllwain, and Anjelica Atchley.

Investigators said Athcley's infant child was also in the apartment.

All five suspects were charged with unlawful manufacture of a controlled substance, trafficking methamphetamine, chemical endangerment of a child, and drug paraphernalia.

Atchley was also charged with two counts of attempt to manufacture a controlled substance.

At another meth bust on Thursday, investigators went to the same apartment complex. They found another infant in that apartment when they were granted access. According to investigators, there was an active meth lab on the other side of the wall from the baby's crib.

Several active meth labs were found inside the apartment.

Agents arrested Randall Oneal Baker, Sheena Baker, and Michael Hudson Franklin. All three were charged with unlawful manufacture of a controlled substance, trafficking methamphetamine, chemical endangerment of a child and drug paraphernalia.

The two apartments are within 50 feet of each other.
