A woman is now facing federal charges after the home she allegedly owns operates as a fully functional meth lab, police say.

A woman was arrested after police discover $2 million worth of crystal meth inside of a home in Harris County Friday, Houston police say.

Harris County deputies responded to a call that stemmed from the woman saying she was under the influence and was unable to care for her 2-year-old son at the 11600 block of Scenic River Drive.

When police arrived the woman was found to be cooking meth and discovered that the home was operating as a fully functional crystal meth lab by HPD’s High Hazard drug lab unit who was on the scene for hours.

SkyEye was above the scene capturing video of officers in hazmat suits and using oxygen tanks in order to enter the home safely.

Approximately 112 kilograms of crystallized meth and 87.2 kilograms of liquid meth were recovered from the home, according to HCSO’s Special Investigations.

Neighbors were shocked by the bust and the potential danger to them.

It’s crazy,” said Artemio Hernandez. “It’s dangerous. I can’t believe it. I can’t believe it. I don’t know what happened with this family.” He added the woman and her family recently moved in.

Both the woman and child were taken to the hospital. The child has since been taken into Child Protective Services. The woman is facing federal charges.
