Tuesday afternoon, troopers from the Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg and deputies from the Scott County Sheriff’s Department went to 3235 Hardy Lake Road in Scott County looking for an alleged active Methamphetamine Lab and a wanted person.
When the officers approached the residence they noticed two people in the rear of the home near an outbuilding.
They went to speak to them and as they approached they noticed the two men, Christopher D. Axsom, 31, from Chestnut Street in Columbus, IN and Dustin A. Evans, 23, from Buckingham Drive in North Vernon, IN, were standing by an active Methamphetamine Lab.
They were both immediately placed into custody and a search of the area located other items commonly used in the production of Methamphetamine.
Both subjects were incarcerated at the Scott County Jail on the charges of Possession of Methamphetamine and Possession of Pre-Cursors to Manufacture Methamphetamine.
The Indiana State Police Methamphetamine Lab Team came to the residence to dismantle and clean up the Methamphetamine Lab.
The wanted person the officers were looking for was not at the residence.
