Four Kearney people are facing charges after police found a working meth lab in their home.

At about 11:57 p.m. Thursday, Kearney Police responded to a noise complaint at 187 Valley View Trailer Court.

During the investigation, police say officers discovered a working clandestine methamphetamine lab. The Central Region Clandestine Laboratory Team was called to the scene, and with the assistance of the Kearney Volunteer Fire Department and Good Samaritan EMS, the meth lab was safely seized and removed.

Police arrested 29-year-old Ryan Molina-Morse, 34-year-old Brett O’Brien, 23-year-old Heather McKinney and 22-year-old Andrew J. Erpelding for Manufacturing a Controlled Substance.

Sophie Viteck lives just across the street from the home where the lab was discovered and says the experience has left her shaken.

"This is supposed to be a nicer area," she said.

Another neighbor, Nicole Stinsel, watched the events from her window.

"I was thinking, I can't believe this is happening across from my house," said Stinsel.

The suspects are all being held at the Buffalo County Jail.
