(Versailles, Ind.) – A meth operation was found in a Versailles motel room Tuesday.
Versailles Town Marshal Joe Mann received a tip from a concerned citizen of possible meth activity at the Moonlight Motel in Versailles. The town marshal and Indiana State Police set up surveillance of the room being used by the suspects.
Troopers did a “stop and knock” and made contact with the occupants of the room. During their conversation several items related to the manufacture of methamphetamine were observed in plain view. The officers secured the room and applied for a search warrant.
Once the warrant was in-hand, a thorough search of the room was conducted. Numerous items used in the manufacture of methamphetamine were found.
Three suspects, all from Versailles, were arrested. Rebecca McGuire, 28; Joseph Keith, 31; and Douglas Estell, 25, are each charged with Manufacturing Methamphetamine and Possession of Precursors. Troopers said the investigation is ongoing and more arrests could be made.
This latest meth bust follows another just a day earlier at a home in Aurora in which three people were arrested.
