Two women in Dickson County are accused of using a child's toy box to hide their suspected methamphetamine lab.

The incident happened July 3 at an apartment on Suggs Street.

Police said they were searching for fugitive but instead found drug paraphernalia, according to a report in the Dickson Herald.

Caitlin Decaney, 24, and Katy Daniels, 23, were charged with making a one-pot meth lab and hiding it with the children's toys.

The women have already appeared before a judge and are being held on $100,000 bond.

The children living at the apartment were 2 and 4 years old.

Police said the children had to be decontaminated because of their proximity to the drugs. They were taken to a local hospital and put into care of the Department of Children's Services.
