Three people have been arrested following the discovery of two suspected meth labs in Mansfield.

The METRICH Enforcement Unit found the first lab at 311 E. Second St. and the second lab was found at 739 Bowman St.

Mansfield Police were responding to a menacing report at 311 E. Second St. when they discovered James F. Reddens,46, attempting to conceal suspected methamphetamine in a bucket of water while questioning him. He was arrested and charged with illegal manufacturing of drugs and possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs.

Several hours later, METRICH received information which led to the second meth lab at 739 Bowman St.

During a consent search, detectives found several ingredients consistent with the manufacturing of methamphetamine. Joanne M. Burns, 47, and Tracy L. Issac, 38, were arrested and charged with illegal manufacture of drugs and possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs.

Authorities say two children who lived at the home were present during the arrest. They were placed with other family members.
