The Marathon County Sheriff's Department says three people are facing criminal charges, and three children are in protective custody after a meth bust Monday on Wausau's westside.

Investigators executed a search warrant at a home on the 600 block of S. 1st Avenue.

Authorities say they seized more than 90 grams of methamphetamine, estimated to be worth $10,000. A small amount of cash along with a video surveillance system was also seized.

A 43-year-old man and 42-year-old woman were arrested. Officers say they're husband and wife. They're both expected to be charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver and for maintaining a drug.

A 27-year-old who was at the home when officers arrived was arrested, and is expected to be charged with possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver.
