Jackson County prosecutors on Wednesday charged two Lee’s Summit residents with manufacturing methamphetamine near a school and in the presence of children.

Scott Stewart, 34, and Kathy Adams, 41, are charged with one count each of manufacturing a controlled substance and three counts each of endangering the welfare of a child.

Missouri Highway Patrol officials said the arrests were a result of a new law that requires merchants to keep a log of pseudoephedrine purchases and requires customers who buy cold medicine containing pseudoephedrine to show a photo ID. It is the second time authorities have used such information to raid a local methamphetamine lab.

Three children, ages 2, 5, and 12, lived at the house.

Authorities said the children were taken to Children’s Mercy Hospital for an examination and would be referred to the Missouri Department of Social Services.
