POLLOK, TX (KTRE) - Angelina County sheriff's deputies uncovered a meth lab Thursday morning in a camper directly adjacent to a child daycare facility, Sgt. Allen Hill said.

Hill said three people were arrested in the bust at 10:40 a.m. on the 100 block of Knollwood Drive.

Deputies served the warrants following tips on stolen property and the meth lab. He said he suspected some of the evidence was destroyed as they heard toilets flushing during the bust.

Arrested were Jesse Self on possession of a controlled substance, Amber Weatherly on possession of certain chemicals with attempt to manufacture and Jared Parker, 41, on possession of a controlled substance. All had Lufkin addresses.

Hill said four children lived at the home. One was a nine-year-old boy who was home sick. Child Protective Services was at the home investigating.
