Garage raid nets meth lab, one arrest

A man was charged Tuesday with multiple felonies after a meth lab was found in a north-end Fort Wayne garage.

David Sherouse, 41, faces counts of dealing methamphetamine, possession of precursors and maintaining a common nuisance.

On April 10, police received a tip of a possible meth lab in the detached garage where Sherouse was living, court papers stated.

Officers searched the garage at 1617 Magnolia Lane, between Interstate 69 and North Clinton Street, and found a one-pot lab and meth ingredients, according to authorities.

Sherouse was being held Tuesday at the Allen County Jail in lieu of $55,000 bail.
