ISP Find Meth Lab in Pickup, Make Arrest

Indiana State Police have made an arrest after allegedly finding a one pot methamphetamine lab in a Warsaw woman’s truck.

The incident occurred last Saturday when 32-year-old Janet Combs was stopped by state police on US 30 near Parker Street in Warsaw. Combs had allegedly run a traffic light. Authorities said she was showing signs of abnormal behavior and alcohol impairment.

According to information given by the Indiana State Police, Combs was driving on a suspended license.

During an investigation, officers noticed items associated with drug paraphernalia inside the truck. Authorities say they also located a black bag in the bed of the truck – which was found to have a one pot meth lab. Police say other items used in the manufacture of methamphetamine were located.

Combs says she had borrowed the truck to take her two boys – ages two and 10 – to the movies.

She was taken to the hospital for a blood analysis. Combs was then booked at the Koscuisko County Jail on charges of possession of methamphetamine, manufacturing meth, and driving while suspended.

An investigation is ongoing.
