Meth labs seized; 17 arrested

A drug sweep in Whitley County on Thursday netted 17 arrests and multiple meth labs, according to a statement issued Friday by the county prosecuting attorney.

It said 14 warrants were issued in the investigation that began in May, and a search of 807 E. Van Buren St. in Columbia City on Thursday turned up the meth labs and more suspects.

Initial hearings are set for Tuesday.
