Entry Description

Decatur County: Yesterday afternoon Indiana State Police and Decatur County Sheriff’s Deputies took down a meth lab and arrested one individual. According to Trooper Brent Miller, the Decatur County Child Protective Services (CPS) received a tip of possible drug activity at 2465W CR850S in Decatur County and requested state police assistance with the home visit. At approximately 3:30 p.m. troopers and CPS personnel arrived at the residence and discovered evidence of possible drug use. A search warrant was applied for and issued and at approximately 5:00 p.m. troopers and deputies executed the search warrant. During the search of the residence they discovered a working meth lab and approximately 2 grams of methamphetamine and numerous firearms. Although there was evidence children had been present in the residence, there were no children present during yesterday’s investigation.

He was taken into custody without incident and currently stands charged with Manufacturing Methamphetamine (Class B Felony), Possession of Methamphetamine (Class D Felony), Possession of Methamphetamine Precursors (Class D Felony), and Improper Storage of Anhydrous Ammonia (Class D Felony). Additional charges and arrests could follow as the investigation continues.

Assisting Tpr. Miller with the investigation was Master Trooper Howard “Chip” Ayers, Tpr. Joe Uhler, and Decatur County Sheriff’s Deputies.
