PLYMOUTH — Instead of a smoking gun, it was a smoking box that landed a Plymouth man in Marshall County Jail Saturday.
Around 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Plymouth Police responded to a call that a man had dumped a smoking box into a dumpster in the 300 block of Kingston Avenue.
When police arrived, they identified the items in the box as what would comprise a meth lab.
Police searched the nearby area and located James Bailey, 23, Plymouth.
Police then searched Bailey’s apartment in the 1000 block of Lincolnway East.
At his residence, police found additional items used in the manufacture of methamphetamine.
Indiana State Police’s Clandestine Team was called to process the scene.
James was booked into Marshall County Jail on a count of manufacturing methamphetamine, a B felony.
No bond was set for Bailey.
