BONNEY LAKE — Deputies found an 8-year-old girl inside a house filled with drugs in Bonney Lake.

According to court documents, deputies found several pounds of meth inside the home. The crystal and liquid meth was in every room including the kitchen where it was being processed right where food was being prepared.

Deputies arrested the girl’s mother, Rosa Cuevas-Valencia, and her boyfriend, Jesus Villagomez-Ledezma.

Prosecutors say Villagomez-Ledezma was turning liquid methamphetamine into crystal meth at his homes in both Bonney Lake and Sumner.

Prosecutors charged him with unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance, unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, and unlawful possession of a firearm while not being a citizen of the United States.

Cuevas-Valencia is charged with unlawful manufacturing of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

Authorities also seized eight guns and thousands of dollars in cash, according to court papers.

The child and her 12-year-old brother are now with Child Protective Services. Officials will test them for exposure to meth.
