STOW, OH (WOIO) -

Five children were removed from a 'shake and bake' meth lab house in Stow.

On Tuesday, the Summit County Drug Unit received information that a Stow school had contacted the Stow Police Department regarding a 12-year-old student that came to school with a cat odor. 

Apparently, meth has a number of smells.  The most common being cat urine.

Police say that's not widely known.

There was a suspicion that methamphetamine was being manufactured in the child's home.

The Summit County Drug Unit conducted a search at a Stow residence. An active one-pot (shake and bake) methamphetamine lab, chemicals, and lab components were found in the basement of the residence.

Methamphetamine waste and other related items were found in the attached garage.

Neighbors had no idea what was going on.

"Absolutely flabbergasted. Never thought in a million years anything like that would go on in this neighborhood," said one neighbor. 

Jason Little, 37, and Brandi Little, 28, were arrested and charged with illegal manufacturing of methamphetamine in the vicinity of a minor, illegal assembly of chemicals/components for the manufacturing of methamphetamine in the vicinity of a minor and endangering children.

Both individuals were booked into the Summit County Jail.

The couple lived in the home for about six months.  Police don't know how long they had used the house to make meth.

Five children, ages 2, 8, 9, 11, and 12, were taken into custody by Summit County Children's Services.
