A Fort Wayne man was arrested on drug charges after a meth raid Thursday at his home, city police said.
Jeramy T. Swartz, 41, of the 3300 block of Brook Valley Place, was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of two or more meth precursors, possession of methamphetamine and illegal dumping of controlled substance waste, all felonies, and misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia. His bond was set at $50,000.
The police departments meth suppression and emergency services teams served a search warrant at the home after narcotics detectives received information that someone at the home was making meth, police said.
When the warrant was served, Swartz and an unidentified woman were found inside the home. An active meth lab, meth precursors, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia were found and seized, police said.
The Fort Wayne Fire Department, Three Rivers Ambulance Authority paramedics and the Fort Wayne-Allen County Department of Health assisted in the investigation, police said. They said the house was condemned because of contamination from an active meth lab, and Fort Wayne firefighters were called in to decontaminate Swartz.
The American Red Cross helped find housing for the woman, police said.
