A former Stow couple recently were sentenced in connection with a meth lab found in their Lillian Road home.
Jason H. Little, 37, and Brandi L. Little, 29, each pleaded guilty to a felony charge of illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs.
Jason Little was sentenced to three years in prison and is currently in the Lorain Correctional Institution, according to Summit County Common Pleas Court records. Brandi Little was given two years of probation and now lives in Rootstown.
An additional illegal assembly charge and a felony child endangerment charge against both were dismissed.
Attorneys for the Littles did not return calls seeking comment.
The investigation began after police received an anonymous tip that a Stow-Munroe Falls School District student might be living in a meth house, Stow Police Chief Louis Dirker said in February.
Stow police and members of the Summit County Drug Unit went to the home on Feb. 19, got permission to enter and discovered the meth lab, including equipment and chemicals, in the basement.
Five children living in the home, then ages 2 to 12, were taken to a local hospital.
Summit County Children Services said at the time that the children were healthy and living together in a foster home.
