JACKSONVILLE, N.C. -- A six-month-old infant was removed from an Onslow County home on Friday after deputies found an active Meth Lab in plain view.
The Onslow County Sheriff's Office says a deputy was dispatched to 606 Gurganus Road in Maple Hill in reference to a domestic violence call. When the deputy arrived, he noticed an active "One Pot" Meth lab and several chemicals with the infant nearby.
The baby and two adults were removed from the home.

The Department of Social Services and Emergency Medical Services took the six-month-old to Onslow Memorial Hospital for decontamination and physical exam.
Dixon and Lewis were transported to the Onslow County Sheriff's Office and are each held on a secured $275,000 bond.
