Meth lab seized; 2 charged


Kosciusko County Drug Task Force officers arrested two men on drug charges after discovering a meth lab in a mobile home park north of Warsaw.

Task force and Warsaw officers began the investigation Thursday night at Green Acres Mobile Home Park after receiving information about a possible methamphetamine lab, according to a written statement issued Friday by the task force.

It said a one-pot method lab was in production and officers preliminarily charged the homeowner, Ricky D. Daniels, 52, who lives off East County Road 200 North, with maintaining a common nuisance, the statement said.
