Entry Description

New Castle – Last night (04/08/13) around 10:30 p.m. as the result of an ongoing investigation, members of the Pendleton District Meth Squad along with the New Castle Police Department served a search warrant on a home at 734 N. 20th St. in New Castle. As a result of their search a meth lab along with the chemicals used to manufacture methamphetamine were found in a camper parked in the backyard.

The camper where the lab was located had recently been lived in by the home owner’s grandson, Justin Braden, age 31. Braden, who is wanted on felony charges out of Blackford County for Possession of a Controlled Substance and Possession of the Precursors Used in the Manufacture of Methamphetamine, had recently moved out.

Meth team members have turned the case over to the Henry County Prosecutor to pursue class “A” Felony charges against Braden, as the property is located directly across the street from an elementary school. No charges are being sought in the ongoing investigation against the home owner, James Kidd, at this time.

Anyone with knowledge of the whereabouts of Justin Braden is urged the call the Pendleton State Police Post at 1-800-527-4752, or the State Police Drug Tip Line at 1-800-453-4756. Tips can be made and kept anonymous. 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 and click on the “Report Suspected Meth Activity” Link.
