UPDATED Two arrested in meth raid
PLYMOUTH — Two arrests have been confirmed from a warrant served on a residence in Plymouth yesterday morning.
According to a press release from the Indiana State Police - Bremen Post, the arrests came about as a result of a seven month investigation conducted by the Indiana State Police Criminal Interdiction Team.
The investigation that began in February started after troopers received a tip from the Marshall County Probation Department. The information suggested that methamphetamine was possibly being used and manufactured at the home located in the 900 block of W. Harrison Street. The state police investigations lead officers to obtain a search warrant for the house.
Wednesday morning, at about 6:45 a.m. the ISP Emergency Response Team (ERT) members served the warrant. At that time, police say items commonly used in the manufacture of methamphetamine and paraphernalia related to use of the controlled substance were allegedly found on site.
Arrested were Justin Felix 30, of Plymouth and Stephanie Whitesell 24, of Plymouth. Whitesell and Felix are charged with methamphetamine manufacturing related charges and taken to the Marshall County Jail. The Plymouth Police Department and Marshall County Sheriff’s Department assisted in the case.
The raid was carried out by the Indiana State Police, with the assistance of Plymouth Police.
