A Waynedale couple face multiple charges after a tip led investigators to numerous methamphetamine labs Monday, according to court papers.
Allen County Child Protective Services received a tip that meth was being made at a home at 5721 Kimberley Road, near Bluffton Road.
When police got there, two small boys came to the window and were looking out at police, a probable cause affidavit said.
The boys’ mother answered the door and said her estranged husband and his girlfriend had been making meth in the home, court papers said.
Andrew M. Black, 27, told police he had one-pot meth labs inside a freezer of the garage. Police found at least six one-pot meth labs, drug paraphernalia, meth-making materials and meth trash throughout the home, court documents said.
Black and girlfriend Danielle R. King, 24, both of the Kimberley Road address, were booked on preliminary charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, maintaining a common nuisance, possession of precursors, possession of meth and possession of paraphernalia.
Black was being held at the Allen County Jail in lieu of $58,250 bail, while King was being held in lieu of $55,750 bail.
