Early this morning, Stow Police received a tip of two men operating a meth lab at a residence at 2106 Uniondale Drive.
When police arrived on the scene, they located the two men operating the lab in the garage as well as throughout the residence.
Police say one of the men had a weapon in his hand when they arrived and fled into the home with the apparent intent to hide the revolver.
Police took into custody, without incident, Stow residents 38-year old Lewis Butler Junior of Uniondale Drive and 41-year old Stephen McKinney of Norman Drive. The pair are charged with the illegal manufacture of drugs and McKinney is facing an additional weapons charge.
The drug charges are felonies because of the presence of a two-year old child in the home.
Butler and McKinney will have a video arraignment today in Stow Municipal Court.
