A short investigation Wednesday led to the arrest of a Warsaw man who has subsequently been charged with class A felony manufacturing/dealing methamphetamine.
Foster M. Dutton, 39, of 112S. Scott St. Apt. A, Warsaw, was arrested when officers served a drug search warrant at about 6 p.m. last night.
In Dutton’s apartment, police located several active one-pot methamphetamine labs, miscellaneous precursors to the manufacture of methamphetamine and an HCL generator.
Dutton’s charges were enhanced because of the proximity of the apartment to several city parks, and Lakeview Middle School. His bond was set at $20,000.
Two teenage children were at the apartment and Indiana Department of Child Services was called in to take temporary custody.
The Indiana State Police Clandestine Lab Team was called to assist Warsaw Police with the clean-up. The investigation is still on-going and more arrests are possible. Warsaw Police was assisted by the Indiana State Police and the Kosciusko County Prosecutor’s Office.
Warsaw Police continue to diligently work to reduce the influence of methamphetamine in our community by being aggressive toward the use, manufacture and possession of this dangerous drug. Any drug tips can be called into the Warsaw Police Department at 574-372-9538.
