Authorities in North Carolina said Friday they found a meth lab inside the home of an elementary school teacher.

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

Investigators say Lori Whitley, 38, and her husband Gary, 41, face a number of charges including manufacturing methamphetamine and child abuse. Deputies say the couple’s 8-year-old son was in the home at the time as well.

Bernard Brodie, a neighbor, told WRAL called Lori Whitley a “good lady” and noticed a strong odor coming from the home but did not know there was a drug operation going on in the house.

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