Albuquerque police busted an apparent meth lab inside a hotel in northeast Albuquerque on Wednesday night.
Officers were conducting a traffic stop at the Motel 6 near Carlisle and I-40 when the occupants of the vehicle said they had three children inside one of the hotel rooms.
Officers went to check on the kids when they found items used to make methamphetamine inside the room.
The room was sealed pending a search warrant and a narcotics team processed the lab.
Detectives arrested the suspects on the stolen vehicle charges.
New Mexico's Children, Youth and Families Department responded to the scene and took custody of the children, ages 5, 13 and 15.
