A small child was taken into protective custody after a 9-1-1 call led Warsaw police officers to a motel room where police seized methamphetamine and two shotguns.

Officers from the Warsaw Police Department went to the Super 8 Motel, 3014 Frontage Road, at 7:16 a.m. Thursday and reported finding two shotguns, one of them sawed off, finished methamphetamine and a child about 2 years old, according to a written statement from the Kosciusko County Drug Task Force.

It said Joe Truman Lynn, 31, of the 400 block of North Indiana Street in Bremen, and the child’s mother, Staci Mai Craig, 20, of the 400 block of West Riverchase Drive in Warsaw, were charged with felony possession of methamphetamine and possession of paraphernalia.

The child was taken into protective custody by Child Protective Services.

Drug task force officers reported finding two one-pot method meth labs inside Lynn’s vehicle in the motel parking lot.

Lynn was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and possession of a sawed-off shotgun, and was arrested on an outstanding warrant out of Elkhart County. His bond was set at $10,000 and Craig’s bond was set at $2,000 by the Kosciusko County Prosecutor’s Office.
