2 dozen meth labs seized in raid; 6 suspects held

Six people are facing meth charges after Huntington city and county police raided a Huntington address Sunday night, police said today.

Police said in a statement they obtained a search warrant for a home in the 200 block of Oak Street because they suspected methamphetamine was being manufactured there.

While searching the residence about 7:30 p.m., about 24 one-pot meth labs were located, the statement said.

It said six Huntington residents were charged with one count of manufacturing methamphetamine, and were being held at the county jail.

Casey L. Newsome, 29, was being held on $100,000 bond, the statement said. It said five others were being held on $75,000 bond each -- Brandi E. Leon, 22; William W. Story, 18; Paula A. Easterday, 42; Bryant W. Steward, 23; and Cory M. Sell, 30.

The scene was processed by the Huntington City and Indiana State Police meth suppression teams, the statement said.
