Three, including juvenile, nabbed on meth charges

Three individuals are now in custody on multiple drug-related charges following the search of a LaGrange County home Saturday.

According to LaGrange County police, officers were conducting an investigation at 7745 N. 1100 East after receiving several tips that methamphetamine was being both used and manufactured at the residence.

As officers approached the residence to make contact, they reportedly witnessed a juvenile subject through an open window smoking from what appeared to be a glass methamphetamine pipe. The juvenile was accompanied by two adults, Michele Ward and Brenda Padgett.

Officers made contact with the two adults, and a search of the residence took place. Officers located two glass smoking pipes as well as a small baggy of white powdery substance that field tested positive for methamphetamine.

Ward was arrested on charges of possession of methamphetamine, maintaining a common nuisance and neglect of a dependent. Padgett was arrested on charges of possession of methamphetamine, possession of paraphernalia, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and visiting a common nuisance. Both Ward and Padgett were booked into the LaGrange County jail.

The juvenile subject was taken into custody by LaGrange County Probation and charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of paraphernalia and visiting a common nuisance.
