NEWFANE, N.Y-- Two people in Niagara County are facing drug charges after the sheriff's office say they discovered a meth lab inside their home and on suspect is no Stanger for being arrested for drugs (Brittany Blenker).

Officers responded to the home on Ridge Road in the Town of Newfane after two young children told a neighbor that they couldn't wake their parents.

Inside they found 33-year-old Joshua Hoefer and 26-year-old Brittany Blenker sleeping in a back room along with what appeared to be an active meth lab.


Officials removed the two children and an infant from the home, and called in the New York State Police CCSERT team to decontaminate the lab.

Both are now being charged with Endangering the welfare of a child; with more charges pending as the investigation continues. They are being held on $5,000 bail, and are due back in court next week.

*** This is not the first time Blenker has been arrested. Back in 2014 Blenker was arrested by Niagara Falls Police for allegedly trying to grab a police detectives gun during another drug arrest. The gun went off, grazing another woman. During a drug raid.
