A man and woman were arrested by Kosciusko County Sheriff's deputies Monday and charged with felonies involving methamphetamine.

Thomas O. Rensberger, 36, of Leesburg, and Kira Margaret Tuttle, 30, of Warsaw, were arrested and charged with a total of six charges. They were arrested after deputies served active warrants on a home in Leesburg and found what investigators say was a meth lab.

Once inside the dwelling, deputies said, they immediately noted the strong odor commonly associated with the production of methamphetamine and subsequently located two active and 18 spent one-pot-method meth labs inside the home.

Rensberger was arrested and preliminarily charged with felony manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine precursors, and two counts of felony possession of methamphetamine. His bond was set at $20,000. Tuttle was also arrested and preliminarily charged with one felony count of possession of methamphetamine less than 3 grams and one felony count of possession of methamphetamine more than 3 grams. Her bond was set at $35,000.
