Four northeast Indiana men were held on meth charges Monday after police found a meth lab in their car, Indiana State Police said today.

Bradley C. Shopoff, 49, of Fort Wayne; Terrence L. Welch, 41, of Fort Wayne; Joshua B. Baughman, 22, of Fremont; and Dana M. Moon, 22, of Angola were taken to the Marshall County Jail on charges of manufacturing and dealing methamphetamine, state police in Bremen said in a statement.

During questioning, a meth lab was located in the car, police said.
