FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) -- A 24-year-old man was arrested Thursday when police were sent to his home on reports of a burglary and found a one-pot meth lab instead.
According to police, James C. Francis called out to a neighbor because he had two people trapped in his basement, so police went to the home in the 4400 block of Weisser Park on report of a "burglary in progress".
Officers checked the inside of the home for intruders but didn't find any evidence that intruders were in the home or that there was forced entry. However, they did find an active one-pot meth lab.
The Meth Suppression Unit found additional evidence of several prior meth labs and chemicals associated with meth production.
Police say paranoia is a common side effect of methamphetamine substance abuse.
Francis was arrested and charged with manufacturing of meth, possession of two or more precursors, maintaining a common nuisance, dumping of controlled waste, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia.
The meth team neutralized the labs.
