Two from Washington County were arrested earlier this morning (Thursday, April 10) by the Indiana State Police and the Washington County Drug Task Force. The pair were operating a meth lab at 9875 South Bullington Road, which is just of West Washington School Road in Western Washington County near Fredericksburg.
Daniel Howard, 42, and Stephanie Trueblood, 29, were arrested and booked into the Washington County Detention Center, according to Washington County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Roger Newlon.
Howard, of 9599 South Bullington Road, was charged with manufacturing meth, possession of precursors, possession of meth, maintaining a common nuisance and possession of paraphernalia.
Trueblood, Salem, was charged with manufacturing meth, possession of precursors, possession of meth, maintaining a common nuisance and possession of paraphernalia.
According to Newlon, police found a Red P Lab along with other meth products. “The Red P stands for Red Phosphorous, which is just another recipe for making meth. One of the bad things about the internet is the availability of all the recipes for making meth. It’s very accessible, unfortunately.”
Newlon said the pair had not been brought before the judge to hear their charges and have their bond set.
