CAPE CORAL, FL--Cape Coral parents are now re-thinking their children's safety.
A meth house was busted right around the corner from their kids' daycare in the 3600 block of Country Club Boulevard.
"That's crazy, that's really crazy," said parent Chantel Perez.
Parents were stunned after finding out their kids pre-school is only 800 feet away from a meth house.
"Freaked out. Not knowing that there is a meth house right down the street and have to see it in the news and the daycare had no idea what was going on," said parent Shannon Scardina.
Last night police arrested 30-year old Dawnette Eash for manufacturing methamphetamine within a thousand feet of a pre-school.
Detectives found 33.5 ounces of meth and materials to cook the drug insdie this home.
Eash admitted to manufacturing the drug in the house.
"Anything could have happened. Anything at all could have happened right here," said parent Kristen Lamberson.
Police say four children were also inside the house and one was 13 years old.
They are all now in DCF custody and neighbors say they had no idea.
"I knew they were sloppy, but I didn't know about drugs, no, no idea whatsoever," said neighbor Mirella Rubano.
This is the third meth bust this year in Cape Coral.
One of them was down Northeast 16th Terrace, right down the road from Diplomat Elementary School.
More than a pound of meth and supplies to cook it were found in that bust.
Cape police say meth is starting to make it's mark in Cape Coral.
"It has been successful on the west coast, pacific northwest, midwest and now to the southeast and now here," said Lt. Anthony Sizemore with Cape Coral Police.
Eash could face more than 30 years in prison.
Cape Coral Police say they are investigating even more meth labs and have leads on those who are possibly making the drug.
