If there is a conviction, a new law could apply to the case. The law went into effect Sunday and increases the penalties for those convicted of methamphetamine where children, the disabled or elderly adults are present by increasing the sentence by 24 months, police said.

Specially trained agents with the State Bureau of Investigation arrived Monday to dismantle the meth operation and remove the hazardous materials. The Newport Fire Department also responded.
