Two North Webster residents were held on methamphetamine charges Friday after an active one-pot meth lab was found inside their home, the Kosciusko County sheriff's department said today.

Courtney Christine Bowling, 24, and Kyle Edward Bradford, 23, were preliminarily charged with dealing/manufacturing methamphetamine, and were being held in the county jail on $150,000 bond each, the sheriff's department said in a statement.

It said county Drug Task Force officers, along with officers from the Warsaw Police Narcotics Unit, received a tip Friday about meth possibly being manufactured at a home in the 8900 East block of County Road 500 North.
