The Associated Press

TILTON, N.H. – Police have arrested seven people in connection with a meth lab found at a home in Tilton.

Police also found a 3-year-old boy inside the home as they entered with search warrants late Wednesday. He was taken to a hospital as a precaution. He is now in protective custody.

Tilton Police Chief Robert Cormier told WMUR-TV that police found methamphetamine cooking in water bottles. After police entered the home, they said the meth lab was located in a walk-in closet in a bedroom.

Police said the materials were dangerously close to exploding and members of the state police bomb squad removed and detonated them.

Six of the seven were arraigned Thursday. One person did not appear in court.

The charges ranged from felony manufacture of a controlled drug, criminal liability for another, possession of controlled narcotics and endangering the welfare of a child.

Tilton police said all seven suspects were taken to the Belknap County Jail where they were being held on $25,000 cash bail each.
