This is an everyday story as parents of young children are hauled off to jail and their sick kids to foster care. In this case the young children, ages 5 and 11, live in Bristol, Tennessee. Besides the meth charges, Tara Glover, 29, and Marcus D. Glover, 35 were also charged with child endangerment.

Police were serving a warrant on another person for previous methamphetamine related charges and found the remnants of new operation and "allegedly received consent to search the home, locating precursors of meth production in a bedroom.
