Another meth lab found, dismantled
For the second time in less than a month, the Harrison County Sheriff’s Dept. raided an alleged meth lab last week, this time near Central, and confiscated a “huge amount” of paraphernalia.
Chief Gary Gilley and officers Bryan Byrne, Brad Shepherd and Marty McClanahan served a search warrant just after noon on Wednesday at a two-tone brown trailer on Union Chapel Road.
An alleged “working meth lab” was raided March 18 near Mauckport, in the woods above Morvin’s Landing off S.R. 11. One man was injured when he fled from police and fell some 70 feet from a cliff, and three others were arrested on meth-related charges. The charges are pending.
The latest search warrant was obtained by Prosecutor Dennis Byrd from Superior Court Judge Roger Davis, Gilley said.
“A skinny white male with long, stringy brown hair and a white female fled into the woods and are still at large,” Gilley said Monday. “Inside the home was a large meth lab and a huge amount of paraphernalia.”
The Indiana State Police Clandestine Lab Team was called in to investigate. Evidence was gathered and the site cleared by 8 p.m., Gilley said. Charges will be filed, he added.
The investigation is continuing.
Anyone with information is asked to call Gilley at 738-2195.
