FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Jeramy Swartz is facing several charges related to methamphetamine, after a search warrant revealed an active meth lab at his home.
This morning, around 9:00 a.m., Fort Wayne police along with drug task force teams severed the warrant at his home on Brooke Valley Place.
During the search, they found an active meth lab, meth precursors, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.
41-year-old Swartz was arrested for Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of 2 or More Meth Precursors, Possession of Paraphernalia, Illegal Dumping of Controlled Substance Waste and Manufacturing Methamphetamine.
Crews called the Fort Wayne Fire Department to take Swartz away because they thought he made contact with some of the materials used to make meth. They gave him a shower and he’s currently being held on $50,000 bond.
The Allen County Health Department condemned the home due to contamination from the active meth lab. As a result, the Red Cross is helping in finding housing for a woman who also lived at the residence.
