Three people were arrested after Fort Wayne police investigated a report of an active methamphetamine lab in a north-side motel.

Samantha Cole, 23; Brandon A. Gammons, 27; and Stephen R. Knott, 28, all were arrested on the same four charges: manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of two or more precursors of methamphetamine; maintaining a common nuisance; and possession of methamphetamine. No addresses were given for those arrested other than the motel where the arrests occurred, The Travel Inn, 2712 W. Coliseum Blvd.

Police report that when they arrived at the motel at 11:47 p.m. Tuesday, they found what they described as an active meth lab inside a motel room. Due to the flammability of some of the chemicals involved in the lab, the Fort Wayne Fire Department was called to assist in case a fire ignited. As a safety precaution, police said, they evacuated several nearby motel rooms, and the occupants were forced to seek shelter in the lobby for approximately one hour until the lab was neutralized by the FWPD Meth Suppression Unit.

Fort Wayne Police report that this is the fifth methamphetamine lab the FWPD Meth Suppression Team has neutralized this year.
