Two women were arrested and charged with drug-related offenses on Thursday as a result of an executed search warrant by the Fort Wayne Police Department's Vice & Narcotics Division.
The warrant was executed around 10:51 a.m. at a residence in the 1500 block of Richardson Street, according to a news release. Members of the FWPD's Emergency Services Team assisted with the warrant, which came after narcotics detectives reportedly investigated alleged methamphetamine production at that location.
Three adults and a juvenile were reportedly at the residence at the time of the executed warrant. Tiffany M. Chapman, 33, was arrested and charged with Class B felony manufacturing methamphetamine, Class D felony maintaining a common nuisance and Class A misdemeanor possession of paraphernalia, while 24-year-old Chelsea R. Hobbs was arrested and charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana, visiting a common nuisance and possession of paraphernalia.
A search of the residence allegedly turned up two active one-pot meth labs, marijuana, synthetic drug "spice," and other drug-related paraphernalia.
The Department of Child Services placed two children in protective custody, with the child who was at the residence at the time of the raid transported to a local hospital to be examined for meth exposure.
The house was condemned by the Allen County Board of Health and boarded up by members of Neighborhood Code Enforcement.
