Warrant search for woman turns up meth

A tip to the LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department led to a woman with a meth-related arrest warrant and a yet another meth lab.

Deputies got a tip on Thursday that Melissa Norris, wanted on felony charges out of LaGrange County, was staying at a place in the 7700 stretch of E 750 North. When they got there, Gregory Williams said she was not there, according to a statement issued by the department.
