Police said they found evidence inside the home at 853 E. 20th St. that someone was using the “one-pot” method to manufacture methamphetamines, a highly volatile method of producing the drug.
Officers responded to the home around 9:15 p.m. Saturday after one of the women claimed her boyfriend had tried to suffocate her. Police were not able to locate the man and subsequently left the residence.
Approximately two hours later the woman, along with her sister and nephew, contacted police again stating they had nowhere to go. According to the report, police attempted to contact several shelters for the group however none would take all three. At that point the women decided to stay in their home with the child, however police said they were “extremely reluctant.”
Police said when one of the women walked inside the home she told police she smelled fire and gas. When police went inside they said they found camp fuel with a flame coming out of it and the oven was open and turned to 350 degrees.
After exiting the residence and calling the fire department police said the woman advised her boyfriend used the home to manufacture methamphetamines.
Upon closer examination police also located several other items used to produce methamphetamines within the home along with syringes. Police said they also found drug paraphernalia and prescription medication.
Police noted in the report that the child had access to areas of the home where the methamphetamines were being produced.
Tiffany Ann Rundell, 25, and Rachael Michelle Rundell, 24, were both charged with production of methamphetamines, possession of a controlled substance, cruelty towards a child and two counts of drug equipment possession.
Both are currently in the Seminole County jail with a $5,200 bond.
Child Protective Services took the child into custody after it was medically cleared.
