NORTH RIDGEVILLE -- Two people were arrested after police uncovered a meth lab in an attic above a North Ridgeville woman's garage.

Conni Miller, 27, was taken into custody on outstanding warrants from North Ridgeville and Avon police, and Robert Reed, 37, was taken into custody on drug paraphernalia charges.

A woman called police to 33124 Glenwood Court Monday morning and reported that she believed someone might be living in the attic above her garage.

Police discovered Miller, who they determined had been living in the attic for about a week. Reed, who lives at the home with his parents, had been hiding Miller in the attic without his parents' knowledge, according to police.

Officers discovered indications that crystal methamphetamine was being manufactured in the garage. When the Detective Bureau and Lorain County Drug Task Force were called to the scene, it was determined that there was an active methamphetamine lab in the attic area as well as several components for manufacturing methamphetamine in the garage.

The lab was removed with the assistance of the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigations mobile response team.

Reed was found to be in possession of items used for smoking methamphetamine.

The investigation into the lab is ongoing.
