2 arrested after meth lab found


Two people were in custody and a young child was taken into protective custody Tuesday after a meth lab was seized in the Etna Green area, police said.

Kosciusko County sheriff's deputies went to a home on Old Road 30, southeast of the town, about 3:45 p.m. to serve a warrant. When they arrived, one of the residents took them to what appeared to be an active one-pot method meth lab, police said.

Two other people inside, Kayla Anne Waltz, 25, of Etna Green, and Eric Michael Graham, 28, of Warsaw, were charged with felony possession of a chemical reagent and/or precursors with intent to manufacture methamphetamine. Waltz was also arrested on the Kosciusko County warrant charging her with criminal conversion.

Waltz was being held in the Kosciusko County Jail in lieu of $12,000 bail, and Graham was being held in lieu of $2,000 bail.

Police said a 4-year-old child was in the home. The child was placed into the custody of the Department of Child Services.
