Inside the house, deputies found four men and large amounts of meth and heroin. There also were a number of guns in the home, though deputies still are looking into the origins and licenses on those weapons.
Matthew D. Gibson, 26, is the resident of the Keister Road home. Terry said Gibson apparently set up the booby trap because his garage had been broken into in the past.
Gibson was in the home with Michael Mayes, 47, Joshua Smith, 32, both of Ashton and John Cornell, 32, of Apple Grove. Terry said Krista Aeiker, 20, was found sleeping with her 21-month-old son.
Terry said the men appeared to have been up all night. The corporal believed the group had been smoking meth in the house while the baby was inside.
Child Protective Services workers were notified of the situation and placed the child in the custody of Aeiker's mother. She took the baby to a local emergency room to be checked out.
Gibson was charged with illegal possession of an explosive device, wanton endangerment, possession of a Schedule II narcotic and child abuse causing injury. Aeiker was charged with child abuse causing injury. Mayes, Smith and Cornell all were charged with possession of a Schedule II narcotic and child abuse causing injury.
All are being held at Western Regional Jail.
