Bellaire, OH --

Members of the Bellaire Police Department, Holmes County Sheriff's Department, and the Neffs Fire Department were busy on Thursday night.

According to Bellaire Police Chief Mike Kovalyk two or three active meth cooks were removed from a home along the 4200 block of Harrison Street and were taken to the village building.

Kovalyk, who removed the components from the home, says he didn't realize how volatile the materials were but says he feels fortunate that he wasn't injured while transporting the materials.

Kovalyk says the village building was closed for the day due to a power outage and added that the materials were placed in a secure location.

Kovalyk says a female who was in the home could face charges and he says a male fled when they arrived. Police are currently working to identify that individual. Officials say a child was in the home and Children Services are looking into the case.

The investigation, which is being conducted by the Belmont County Drug Task Force and the Bellaire Police Department is ongoing.
