Fox 8, Nov 28, 2015

ALLIANCE, OH – A hidden methamphetamine manufacturing lab was discovered at a house in Alliance Friday evening. But what police found especially upsetting about this particular lab is that it was inside the home of a young boy who was recently the victim of a hit and run accident.

11-year-old J.J. Morris was hit by a car on East State Street in Alliance on November 3rd while he was riding his bike. The accident left him with broken bones from his hip to his toes on his right side and confined to a wheelchair.

Police received complaints about a meth lab operating inside the home, and say that the lab itself was located directly under the family room, where J.J. watched television and a baby play pen was found.

Loyal C. Williams, 36, and Cynthia Morris, 33, were arrested on felony meth manufacturing charges and child endangering. Morris, J.J.’s mother, was interviewed for a story Fox 8 did on the hit and run that injured her son.
