Drug/alcohol arrests

• Police arrested two men after a raid on a Country Squire Estates home in Topeka Friday.

LaGrange County police said the raid occurred around 9:15 p.m. at 335 North St. Lot 41. Officers waited until that time due to the large number of children in the area out trick-or-treating.

During a search of the home, police reportedly found a one-pot methamphetamine lab, methamphetamine, meth precursors and paraphernalia, and several hypodermic needles.

Police arrested Christopher D. Hollowell, 33, 335 North St. Lot 41, Topeka, and Justin M. Harrington, 28, 246 N. 600 West, Albion, on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a park or family housing complex, a Class A felony; possession of methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a park or family housing complex, a Class A felony; and possession of precursors with intent to manufacture methamphetamine, a Class D felony. In addition, Hollowell was arrested on a charge of maintaining a common nuisance, a Class D felony, and Harrington was arrested on a charge of visiting a common nuisance, a Class A misdemeanor.

Both men were incarcerated in the LaGrange County jail.

The raid followed a joint investigation between the LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department, the Topeka Police Department and the LaGrange County Prosecutor’s Office over the past several weeks.
