An Etna Green man was being held without bail after his arrest on multiple meth charges.

The Warsaw Police Department received a tip Wednesday evening that Joshua Stacy was going from store to store in Warsaw, buying items that are commonly used to make meth.

Drug Task Force officers from Warsaw and the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department found him at his home and reported finding an active methamphetamine lab outside a shed on the property along with chemicals, precursors and finished meth.
