ZEBULON, N.C. (May 17, 2015) — Authorities say they found a meth lab inside the North Carolina home of a 38-year-old elementary school teacher.

Johnston County deputies told media outlets that the equipment to make methamphetamine was found Friday morning when officers served a search warrant on the Zebulan home, about 24 miles east of Raleigh.

Investigators say Lori Whitley and her 41-year-old husband, Gary, face a number of charges including manufacturing methamphetamine and child abuse. Deputies say the couple’s 8-year-old son was in the home.

Wake County schools officials say Whitley has been a third-grade teacher at Wendell Elementary School since 2002.

It wasn’t known if the couple had lawyers.
