LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say an 18-month-old was found in grave danger when officers discovered the child in a car with three suspects and "highly combustible" meth ingredients.

It happened shortly after 2:00 Tuesday morning. Police say they found a 2012 black Chevy Cobalt in the Lincoln Lot near River Road and the Waterfront.

Police say the parking lot had closed at 11 p.m.

When police approached the car, they say they saw an 18-month-old boy sitting on the lap of a woman inside. There were two men in the car as well.

When officers questioned one of the men, he initially denied that there were any drugs in the car. Police say they looked through the windows of the car, and they could see Sudafed, oven cleaner and cut up gasoline containers.

At that point, police asked for permission to search the vehicle, and it was granted.

Inside, they allegedly found meth inside coffee filters that had been pushed up underneath a baby's car seat. Police determined that the items inside the car were used to make meth.

Police say the 18-month-old child was placed in "great danger" because of the "highly combustible" ingredients in the car.

Officers arrested 24-year-old Tony M. Reynolds, 21-year-old Robert S. Keen and 20-year-old Stephanie M. Nason. All of them are charged with -- among other things -- manufacturing methamphetamine, wanton endangerment and unlawful possession of a meth precursor.
