Police arrested an Iowa City woman after raiding what they described as a meth lab Monday afternoon.

Cindy Guhl, 50, 101 Shrader Road, was charged with keeping a drug house and child endangerment.

According to police, officers responded to 101 Shrader Road after a report of an active meth lab.

Guhl gave consent to officers to search her home, police said. However, police said, they had to get a search warrant after one of Guhl’s children denied consent to search his room.

When officers executed the warrant, they allegedly found meth paraphernalia, precursors packaging material, a digital scale, and evidence of meth manufacturing, police said.

Police contend that Guhl admitted to knowing that one of her children was making meth because she could smell a “toxic odor” coming from his room.

Guhl’s 15- and 12-year-old children were also living in the home and were exposed to the lab and other effects of living in a drug house, police said.

Keeping a drug house and child endangerment with no injury are both aggravated misdemeanors and are generally punishable by up to two years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.
