Traffic stop results in meth arrest

A Fort Wayne man was arrested late Friday after a traffic stop led police to a meth lab.

About 10:30 p.m., police stopped 33-year-old Kenneth Sorrell in the 700 block of Putnam Street and discovered during the stop that there was methamphetamine in the car, according to the Fort Wayne Police Department.

As narcotics officers spoke with Sorrell, they learned about a meth lab at 2206 Brooklyn Ave., police said.

The meth suppression unit neutralized the lab found at that location.

In addition to the lab, police said they also found several precursors used to make meth.

Sorrell, of the 800 block of Archer Avenue, was arrested on preliminary charges of methamphetamine possession, manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of two or more precursors.
