HARTSELLE, Ala. (AP) — Authorities say an Alabama husband and wife arrested on drug charges were cooking and using methamphetamine in front of children in their home.

Al.com reports (http://bit.ly/1HqsueC) that 40-year-old Anthony Smith and 39-year-old Shawna Smith were charged with drug manufacturing, drug possession and drug endangerment of a child after police performed a welfare check Wednesday at their Hartselle home.

Morgan County Sheriff Ana Franklin says the check was ordered after drug task force officers got a tip the couple was making and using drugs in front of children. Investigators say they had a 17-year-old child and 10-month-old grandchild in the home.

The Morgan County Department of Human Resources removed the children from the home. It was not immediately known if the Smiths had attorneys.
