BANDERA, Texas -- What started as a Child Protective Services (CPS) case resulted in the arrests of a family found cooking crystal meth in their own home on Thursday evening.

Bandera County Sheriff's Office and CPS were initially at the home in the 100 block Siesta, just west of downtown Bandera, to serve an order to remove a male child from the home. Once they made entry into the home, they realized that the child was in more danger than they had initially thought.

Investigators found at least 400 grams of methamphetamine that was ready for sale. Three people were arrested: a woman, her 18-year-old son, and the woman's boyfriend. According to detectives, the suspects have a history of meth making and when they learned that the family had recently moved back into town, they kept a close eye on the home.

BCSO says there will probably be more arrests as the case progresses.
