Meth lab found in Lake station

11 Dec

On December 11, 2013, at approximately 1:45 a.m., Lake Station Police Department obtained a search warrant for a residence in the 3300 block of Arizona Street, Lake Station, Indiana, in conjunction to a narcotic investigation. With the assistance of the Northwest Regional SWAT Unit and Lake Station SWAT Unit, the warrant was executed and five individuals were taken into custody. During a multi-month investigation, Lake Station officers conducted several undercover (controlled) purchases of methamphetamine “Meth” from the residence. Lake Station narcotic officers started working with investigators from DEA and Jasper County Sheriff’s Department. Officers obtained evidence that the subjects were “cooking” the product inside the house, which is located in a residential area of the city. During the investigation, officers discovered that the subjects were responsible for supplying methamphetamine to several other communities in Indiana as far away as Newton County and Jasper County.
During a search of the residence, officers confirmed the residence was being used as a “Meth Lab” and recovered evidence indicating that several batches of Meth had been “cooked” in the residence. Among the items that were confiscated were methamphetamine and several electronic devices. Lake Station Narcotic Officers plan on presenting their case to the Lake County Prosecutor’s office Thursday afternoon.
As always we encourage anyone with information about
someone selling or manufacturing narcotics
in the community to contact :
the Lake Station Police Department at 219-962-1186.
