Two one-pot meth labs were recovered at a Sellers Lake home early today, and a Warsaw man was held on a possession of precursors charge, the Kosciusko County sheriff's department said today.
William D. Kent Jr., 53, was held at the Kosciusko County Jail without bond, the sheriff's department said in a statement.
It said deputies responded shortly after 1 a.m. to a home on Lake Shore Drive West at Sellers Lake after receiving a call about a possible loud explosion.
Deputies arrived, located Kent, the homeowner, and noticed numerous items related to the manufacturing of methamphetamine, the statement said.
It said county Drug Task Force officers obtained a search warrant and located the meth labs, more items associated with making meth and "an area that appeared to have been recently scorched from the reported explosion."
Kent was preliminarily charged with felony possession of precursors with the intent to manufacture a controlled substance, the statement said.
The Indiana State Police Methamphetamine Lab Team, Winona Lake police and the county prosecutor's office assisted.
