SYRACUSE – It looks like a Fort Wayne woman sold some prescription drugs to the wrong people.
36-year-old Stefanie Brickey was arrested Tuesday night after undercover police in Syracuse allegedly bought some prescription pills from her.
Then, members of the Syracuse Police Department and Kosciusko County Drug Task Force found something they weren’t expecting – a meth lab. The one pot meth lab was found on the front floor of a vehicle occupied by Brickey and 31-year-old Justin Baker of Fort Wayne.
A further search of the vehicle turned up several grams of meth, ingredients to make the meth and some needles. Baker was also taken into custody.
Brickey was booked into the Kosciusko County Jail on charges of dealing a controlled substance and manufacturing methamphetamine within 1,000 feet of a family housing complex. Baker faces the same charges.
The officers on the scene got help from the Indiana State Police Clandestine Lab Team, who was called in to clean up and remove the meth lab.
