According to the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office, members of the Tactical Impact Unit served a search warrant at 13 South Wadsworth Avenue in Beverly Hills for reports the residents of the home were cooking meth.

Detectives located a meth lab, several items used to manufacture meth and several items of paraphernalia.

The investigation revealed the meth lab was active while the four-year-old was inside the home.

Three subjects were arrested. DCF responded to the scene to shelter the child.

The team made several verbal notifications before entering a bedroom in the home where Paul Milazzo, 37, was located.

Milazzo was arrested for manufacturing in the presence of a child. If convicted, he faces a five-year minimum mandatory sentence.

He is also charged with battery on a law enforcement officer, manufacturing meth in the presence of a child, conspiracy to manufacture meth, possession of a listed chemical used to manufacture meth and possession of drug paraphernalia.
