Several people were arrested in Greencastle over the weekend after police discovered what was identified as a mobile meth lab.
Police Chief Tom Sutherlin told the Banner Graphic that Officer Chris Helmer was conducting a routine traffic stop early Friday morning on a vehicle occupied by 28-year-old Chad Buttery of Russellville and 37-year-old Timothy French.
According to the police chief, the suspects ran from the officer and a foot pursuit ensued. The men were tracked to the home of Buttery's brother, 34-year-old Fred Buttery, located on Avenue E in Greencastle.
Chad Buttery along with French were arrested on charges of resisting law enforcement and manufacturing or financing the manufacture of a controlled substance.
The police chief said the state police drug unit inspected the car and determined methamphetamines were being manufactured out of the vehicle.
Also arrested were Fred Buttery and Christina Golden. Both were charged with neglect of a dependent (because there were children present in the home) and maintaining a common nuisance, in addition to possessing and dealing in marijuana.
The police chief said he did not think drugs were being manufactured in the home.
