COOKEVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Two children are in state custody following a methamphetamine bust in their Putnam County home Friday night, according to the Cookeville Herald Citizen.

The mother of the two children, Amber Clark, told police she was using the meth, which was being cooked for her by her two housemates.

All three were arrested and charged with making meth and reckless endangerment.

Clark had her two children living with her in the home when police found the meth lab. The children were taken to the hospital to be decontaminated.

Police said one of the housemates, James Cumby, 46, was already on probation for a previous meth case.

His nephew, Miles Cumby, 23, was on probation for an aggravated burglary charge.

Police said Miles had been purchasing pseudoephedrine in the weeks prior to the bust. The home was evacuated and quarantined for decontamination.

The Department of Children's Services now has custody of the children.
