MAGNOLIA, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police say they’ve charged a man after a three-month probe into methamphetamine manufacturing at a Kent County home.

Police said in a news release Wednesday that investigators went to a home in Magnolia on Tuesday with a search warrant and found 30-year-old Ronald Hawkins in a shed acting suspiciously. A short time later, police say Hawkins went to a Wal-Mart in Camden, where troopers found key ingredients for making methamphetamine in his vehicle, and Hawkins was arrested.

Police say detectives found equipment and ingredients for making methamphetamine at the Magnolia property and three children found at the home were turned over to a relative.

Hawkins is charged with operating a clandestine lab, possession of drug paraphernalia and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
