Police meth team finds two kids in house

Two children were placed in foster care Thursday after police said they found chemicals used to make methamphetamine in a woman’s home.

About 9 a.m., the Fort Wayne Police Department’s Emergency Services Team and Meth Suppression Unit served a search warrant at 31-year-old Holly A. Jen’s home in the 1400 block of Swinney Avenue. Officers found several volatile chemicals often used to make meth, police said.

Two children were home and were placed in foster care by the Department of Child Services, and the house was condemned, police said.

Jen was jailed on preliminary charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of two or more precursors, dumping a controlled substance, neglect of a dependent, maintaining a common nuisance, possession of a controlled substance and paraphernalia possession.

She was being held in lieu of $63,250 bail.
