State and local police raided a local home and took four children to a hospital Sunday morning after shutting down a suspected methamphetamine lab.

Two people will be summonsed to Wrentham District Court at a later date.

The children were taken to a hospital to be evaluated due to possible exposure to the chemical by-products of the alleged meth lab, according to police.

The manufacturing of meth is highly volatile and carries the risk of explosion and fire.

The raid is the third meth-related incident in the Attleboro area in three months.

On Feb. 22, a Norton man was killed at an apartment complex on Faith Way while he was “cooking” meth in his apartment.

In North Attleboro, two people were arrested Jan. 15 when state and local police raided a Heather Street home where they found a small, “one-pot” meth lab.

The manufacturing of meth is extremely toxic to young children and the state Department of Children and Families has been notified, according to police.

When executing the search warrant, police detoured traffic around the home, located in the area of Green Street (Route 106) and Hampshire Street near the Mansfield line.

Local police and members of the state police Clandestine Lab Enforcement Team executed the search warrant.

The state police team is made up of detectives, chemists, bomb squad technicians and works closely with specially-trained members of the Department of Fire Services Hazardous Materials teams.
