Standing behind a table loaded down with sniper and 'assault style' weapons, Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar late Wednesday revealed that the guns had been seized from a northeast side home which was being used as a major lab to manufacture methamphetimine, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
"It was complete with precurser chemicals, ingredients common to the manufacture of methamphetimine, but also quite a lot of the finished product," the sheriff said.
He said deputies were acting on a tip when they raided the home on Evans Road near Veterans Memorial High School last night.
He says they also found a five year old boy who was apparently living inside the home.
"Probably the most heartbreaking aspect was, there was a five year old boy who was living here, amid all the chemicals of a meth lab," he said.
And Salazar says the home was also very well armed.
"They have a pretty high powered sniper rifle, a short barreled rifle here, assault style weapons," he said.
Salazar says a man and a woman have been arrested and will face multiple charges, including child endangerment. The boy was turned over to Child Protective Services.
