CARUTHERSVILLE, MO (KAIT) - A 6 year-old was removed from a home Friday after police report finding a meth lab in the kitchen while he was asleep upstairs.

28 year-old Aaron Krolak and 28 year-old Courtney Cole, both of Caruthersville, face charges of making meth with intent to deliver and endangering the welfare of a child after police say a working meth lab was found in their kitchen.

A news release from Caruthersville Police Department says they and the Bootheel Drug Task Force found a strong chemical smell coming from Apartment 10 at Fox Estates. Police made contact with the resident of the apartment and reported finding a working methamphetamine lab in the kitchen.

Additionally, police say they found meth, marijuana and several pieces of drug paraphernalia in the apartment, all while a 6 year-old child lay asleep upstairs.

The 6 year-old was removed from the residence and placed with Division of Family Services.

Krolak was arrested and transported to Pemiscot County Jail on a $100,000 bond. Krolak also had an additional $3,500 bond on a failure to appear warrant in Stoddard County on a charge of possession of marijuana.

Cole, who is reportedly pregnant, was arrested and transported to jail shortly before being taken to Pemiscot Memorial Hospital for possible pregnancy complications. Police say she will be taken back to Pemiscot County Jail upon release.
