Gallia County Sheriff's deputies arrested two people on the 1900 block of Georges Creek Road in Gallapolis, on meth charges.

Officers say they received a tip that led them to the home of Mary Marcum and Aaron Fitzpatrick, where they found two one-pot type containers and other items used to produce meth.

Children's Services was called to attend to two children, ages 9 and 11 who were inside the home.

Marcum and Fitzpatrick were taken to the Gallia County Jail.

Because children were present, they are charged with felony illegal manufacturing of drugs.

Sheriff's deputies ask that citizens with information on drug and criminal activity should call the 24 hour tip line at (740) 446-6555.
