Meth operation discovered near elementary school

Summers

FORT WAYNE – Allen County Warrants Division officers were attempting to serve a warrant in a neighborhood north of downtown when they found two meth labs, finished meth and ingredients for more, police said.

Travis S. Summers, 28, was arrested Wednesday in the 500 block of High Street on a number of charges – violation of probation, manufacturing methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a school, possession of methamphetamine, possession of two chemical reagents (precursors) and maintaining a common nuisance – according to a statement issued Thursday by the Allen County Sheriff’s Department.

Maps of the area show that Bloomingdale Elementary School is within a few blocks.

Officers reported finding 10.2 grams of meth.

The sheriff’s department said Summers was being held without bond.

The Allen County Drug Task Force and the Fort Wayne Methamphetamine Suppression Unit were called to assist in the investigation.
