(Osgood, Ind.) - Three people are charged after a possible mobile meth lab was discovered in Ripley County Wednesday.
At about 7:00 p.m., deputies from the Ripley County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a suspicious vehicle and persons on County Road 425 North near Osgood, Sheriff Tom Grills said.
Deputies soon located the suspects. The vehicle they were travelling in was housing what Grills called “a methamphetamine manufacturing operation.”
The three people arrested have been identified as Giana Getz, 26, of Greensburg; Travis Manlief, 26, of Greensburg; and Allen Herbert, 54, of Millhousen. They are each preliminarily charged with Manufacturing Methamphetamine. The investigation has been forwarded to the Ripley County Prosecutor’s Office, which will decide on formal charges.
The Sheriff’s Office was assisted at the scene by the Osgood Police Department, and the Indiana State Police Methamphetamine Suppression Team.
