2 held on Kosciusko meth charges


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.

Officers arrived shortly after 6:30 p.m. and discovered the meth lab, Bowling and Bradford, the statement said.

The Indiana State Police Clandestine Lab Team was sent to the scene to secure and remove the meth lab from the home.
