Warsaw It was a busy day for Warsaw narcotics officers as they arrested four people for meth.

Early Tuesday morning narcotics officers performed a search warrant on a vehicle. Narcotics officers were made aware of the location of 41-year-old, Roger Runyon, of South Bend, and verified an arrest warrant for Runyon stemming from an October 2013 Meth lab on Center Street in Warsaw.

Officers say Runyon was a habitual traffic violator and an Indiana State Police trooper made a traffic stop on Runyon’s vehicle. At the time of his arrest, Runyon had a white powdery substance on him that tested positive for Meth. The search warrant produced finished Methamphetamine, spent Meth labs, and precursors used in the manufacture of Meth.

Runyon was initially booked on the warrant and for being a Habitual Traffic Offender. Narcotic officers also filed class B felony charges of Manufacturing Methamphetamine. He is being held at the Kosciusko County Jail with no bond.

Later that day at approximately 3:30 p.m., undercover Warsaw narcotics officers performed a buy and bust after receiving a tip of Meth activity.

Warsaw Police stopped the suspect vehicle near Winona Avenue and Lake Street immediately following the purchase of Methamphetamine.

34-year-old Chad Goble, of Mentone and 31-year-old George Prater, of Akron, were taken into custody for class B felony Dealing Methamphetamine. Both are being held at the Kosciusko County Jail with no bond.

21-year-old Barbara Fields, of Akron, was also in the car. She was booked into the jail for a misdemeanor charge of Visiting a Common Nuisance.

Warsaw Narcotics officers were assisted by the Indiana State Police and the Kosciusko County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.
