One of the meth labs targeted was destroyed by fire just hours before the raid. The nitro police all helped in the raids. The division of family services was also called in at one of the locations after a child was found there. No arrests after a child was found there. No arrests as of this afternoon, but the Sheriff's Department says it's filing arrest warrants and following up on more leads regarding the meth investigation.
