(NEWS CENTER) -- A man and woman have been arrested Friday afternoon after a meth lab was discovered inside their home in New Sharon. The Maine Drug Enforcement Agency's lab team is now at the home on Route 2 and wearing protective gear will dismantle the lab and gather evidence.

Arrested are 38-year-old Daniel Villacci and 30-year-old Tabatha Schoubroek both have been charged with trafficking in meth and endangering the welfare of a child.

Two young children also live at the house and the Maine Department of Health and Human Services has been called to assist with the children's care.

The lab was discovered at the ranch style home today by MDEA and Franklin County Sheriff's Deputies after they went to the house at 545 Farmington Falls Road. They were following up on a tip from Farmington Police. Villacci was out on bail on previous drug charges.

The couple are each being held in lieu of $50,000 bail.

Also assistin were the Maine Department of Environmental Protection and the New Sharon Fire Department. This is the sixth meth lab discovered in Maine, so far this year. Last Friday, a meth lab was found inside an Ellsworth apartment, and earlier this month, a lab was dismantled inside a house in Bar Harbor.
