20 meth labs seized from home

Tuttle
Rensberger

Two active meth labs and 18 spent ones were taken from a Leesburg home Monday.

Kosciusko County Sheriff's Department drug task force officers were serving felony warrants in the morning at a residence in the 300 block of Smith Street when they smelled the distinctive scent, according to a written statement issued by the department.

  • Kira Margaret Tuttle, 30, of Warsaw, was 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.
  • Thomas O. Rensberger, 36, of Leesburg, was 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.
The two suspects were removed immediately because of the strong fumes, the statement said, and the Indiana State Police Clandestine Lab Team was called in. The Leesburg/Plain Township Fire Department responded as a precaution.
