A mother is now behind bars after neighbors reported her child smelling like ammonia. 

An anonymous call to the Huntington Police Department led officers to a home on 701 South High Street in Guyandotte Saturday to investigate the well-being of a small child.  Erin Ashley Mullins, 31, answered the door and let officers see the home, so they could make sure it was safe and food was available, according to the news release. 

Officers found several meth-making materials needed to operate a lab.  Mullins was charged with exposure of a child to methamphetamine. The news release also states two other people in the home at the time are facing charges. 

Eric Mount, 41, already with one felony warrant for conspiracy to operate a clandestine lab, is facing the same charges again. John Cloninger, 25, who lives with Mullins in the home, is charged with exposure of a child to methamphetamine. 

The 3-year-old child is now in the custody of Child Protective Services.  Mullins, Mount and Cloninger are in the Western Regional Jail. Bail was set for $100,000 each. 

The Department of Environmental and West Virginia State Police were also called. Trooper Rachel Blankenship, a clandestine lab technician, assisted with collecting evidence being sent to the WVSP Forensic Laboratory for analysis.
