CLARKSVILLE, Ind. (WHAS11) -- Two meth labs were busted in Southern Indiana and three people have been arrested for the crime.

Late Monday night, police discovered meth and meth making materials inside a home in the 300 block of Lake Drive in Silver Lakes Community in Clarksville. The two people living there, Ronald Satterfield and Carla Lindsey, were arrested.

Police also arrested a man from the home across the street, Robert Forston, who also allegedly possessed meth and meth making materials. All three suspects face preliminary charges of manufacturing and possessing meth and drug paraphernalia.

An undercover police officer who says they acted quickly because the community is full of families with children.

"It's summer time, you've got kids out playing all the time. This is a close quarter residential area...So it definitely brings a sense of urgency to follow-up on this type of information," the officer said. The officer also mentions that there is a park immediately behind one of the homes where meth was found at which children often play.

WHAS11 was told the "shake and bake" method of meth making was used, which can be highly explosive.
