Comments Off on Methamphetamine lab, kids found in Mishawaka home; 45-year-old man arrested

MISHAWAKA — Two children were removed from a Mishawaka home and one man was arrested Thursday after police found a lab and other unsafe conditions inside the house.

Officers first responded about 7:40 p.m. Thursday to the home in the 500 block of Hendricks Street, near 6th Street, to check on a child’s welfare.

When police went inside, they found two children wearing coats and blankets, with the only heat coming from an oven with the door cracked open. Along with the meth lab, the officers found there was no food and no working plumbing.

Police contacted the Department of Child Services and took the children to a hospital to be treated for exposure. A 45-year-old man who was at the home was arrested on suspicion of child neglect.

The home is about two blocks from LaSalle Elementary School. The Tribune generally does not name suspects until charges have been filed.
