The Hills walk daily up and down Dromedary Drive.
"They have very few problems in this area," said neighbor Norman Hill.
It was a Wednesday stroll past fresh quarantine notices on one house, after police busted a meth lab inside.
"The house was always dead quiet during the day, but the lights were on all night," said Virginia Hill.
Investigators said they could smell the chemicals wafting through an open window.
A two-year-old, asleep inside at the time.
A one pot, soda bottle, shake and bake lab was actively cooking meth and hidden underneath the mattress on which the little girl slept.
"You're talking to a grandmother that lost a three-and-a-half-year-old granddaughter this year. And what I wouldn't give to have that child in my arms. And they have a perfectly healthy child, and do that to them? No, that's just wrong," said Virginia Hill.
Police arrested the girl's father, Matthew Richardson, and her mother, Amanda Elrod.
She and Richardson are both in jail without bond and are due in court Thursday morning.
