WESTPOR, Ind. (WISH) – Two people were arrested this week after police found methamphetamine in their rental home in Westport.
According to 24-Hour News 8’s partners, The Greensburg Daily News, Joshua L. Harris, 37, and Sharon D. Huber, 52, were arrested late Wednesday night. Officers went to their home in the 10000 block of West CR 850 South in Westport after receiving a tip.
Huber answered the door and Harris was found a short time later hiding underneath bales of hay in a nearby barn, according to a police report. He was arrested without incident.
During the search, officers discovered “various drug paraphernalia and material used in the manufacture of methamphetamine” inside the residence, court documents state. Officers also discovered a modified propane tank that contained anhydrous ammonia, a chemical commonly used to make meth.
They each face felony charges of dealing in methamphetamine and possession of chemical reagents or precursors with intent to manufacture methamphetamine. Huber has also been charged with maintaining a common nuisance, a class D felony, while Harris faces a misdemeanor charge of possession of paraphernalia.
