Police stop car on Jefferson, see meth lab

Officers stopping a car on one of Fort Wayne’s busiest streets reported seeing parts of an active meth lab during a traffic stop.

The officers stopped the car on Jefferson Boulevard at Freeman Street about 10:20 a.m. Thursday, according to a statement distributed by the Fort Wayne Police Department.

Police said the active one-pot meth lab and a number of items commonly used to make the illegal drug were found inside the car near Rockhill Park.

Two people were arrested on charges of manufacturing and possession of methamphetamine, identified by police as Troy Topp and Danielle Anderson. No ages or other identifying information was immediately available. Bond was set at $50,000 for each.

Two other people were charged with visiting a common nuisance. The Journal Gazette does not routinely name those charged only with misdemeanors.
