Angola police officers smelled smoke in the northwest section of the city and followed their noses to the backyard of a house in the 400 block of South Superior Street on Monday morning. They didn’t just find burning trash.
They described the owner’s behavior as “peculiar” and requested a search warrant.
Police report finding a meth lab in the garage and lots of drug paraphernalia, meth and marijuana.
Billy Harmon, 50, was arrested in connection with the drugs, the police said in a statement. His house was condemned until all the meth residue can be removed.
His four dogs were removed from the residence by the Steuben County Humane Society.
