ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. (KSDK) -- A South Countyhome was ordered to be vacated following a meth bust.

St. Louis County police arrested a 33-year-old resident and placed a 3-year-old child into protective custody after the search of a home in the 5200 block of Camelot Estates on Wednesday.

Police said they found nearly 20 grams of finished product, about 60 grams of liquid meth and over 150 pounds of anhydrous ammonia and other equipment used to make meth.

Employees of an area business reported they saw someone dump items illegally into their dumpster. They contacted police, which prompted the search.

Police found eight different meth labs in the dumpster.

The Order to Vacate will remain in effect until the property owner provides a certified letter from a professional contamination abatement professional stating that the house is free of residue/contaminants relating to methamphetamine production.
