  • Springfield Township Police and the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force are searching for 31-year-old Amanda Sue Garrison in connection with a methamphetamine lab explosion that left one man severely burned and endangered Garrison's three children, according a release from the department.
    Garrison, of Springfield Twp., allegedly transported the male burn victim to the hospital, leaving her three minor children inside the contaminated residence alone after the explosion. Springfield police responded on Sept. 14 to a Gowanda Ave. residence for a report of a suspected methamphetamine lab. Officers discovered an active lab that appeared to have caught fire the previous night.
    Garrison's children received a medical evaluation at a local hospital and have been placed in protective custody.
    Police have issued a warrant for Garrison on charges of illegal assembly of chemicals, endangering children and tampering with evidence. She is believed to have fled the area to evade police and law enforcement officials are asking anyone with information on her whereabouts to contact the Springfield Township Police Department at (330) 784-1609 or the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force at 1-866-4WANTED.
