Entry Description

Muncie – Yesterday (7/11/13) around 3:15 p.m. Pendleton Trooper Tom Harbison stopped a black GMC Sonoma in the area of 29th St. and Walnut St. in Muncie for a traffic violation. After speaking with the vehicle’s occupants, Harbison noticed items that could be used to manufacture methamphetamine in the vehicle.

Further investigation led to members of the Pendleton District Meth Suppression Squad to obtain a search warrant for a home at 1901 Milton St. in Muncie. When troopers served the search warrant they found a meth lab. Arrested was Joseph Fleming V, age 36, and his wife, Virgena Fleming, age 33.

Both were lodged in the Delaware County Jail on Class “B” Felony Conspiracy to Manufacture Methamphetamine; Class “D” Felony Possession of Precursors and Class “D” Felony Maintaining a Common Nuisance. The investigation is ongoing with further charges and arrests possible.

Signs to look for meth manufacturing are a strong ammonia or solvent smell like an auto body shop. Look for rubber tubing, ether or camp fuel cans, plastic bottles with white residue, Pseudoephedrine packages, lithium battery casings, and propane tanks with a blue or green discoloration around the valve.

Often times meth Labs are found as a result of an anonymous tip from a neighbor or friend. Anyone with information about illegal drug use may call the Pendleton Post at 1-800-527-4752, or the Indiana State Police Drug Tip Line at 1-800-453-4756. Tips can be made and kept anonymous. The Indiana Meth Investigation System or IMIS, can also take tips on meth labs. Just go to www.meth.in.gov and click on the “Report Suspected Meth Activity” Link.
