PUTNAM COUNTY, Fla. -- A suspicious person lurking outside a home in Interlachen led investigators to a meth house with children inside.

According to the Putnam County Sheriff's Office, today a resident on Jackson Terrace told deputies a suspicious person was hiding in the back yard.

Deputies found the man, and he said he had been at another home on the street smoking methamphetamine Sunday night.

The deputies then went to the home of Danny Emerson Grimm, 36, and discovered that he had recently been manufacturing meth.

There were two children, ages 8 and 13, in the home, and the deputies believe they had been there while the meth was being cooked.

Grimm was arrested on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of listed chemicals, possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts of child abuse.

The children were taken to a hospital for a checkup and were then released into the custody of the Department of Children and Family Services.
