Call it the right place at the right time, or the wrong place, depending on the point of view. For Debbie D. Dillman, 57, of Crawfordsville and Chadd W. Ferrier Jr., it certainly was bad news as they were arrested and charged with crimes in connection to what police suspect is a large methamphetamine lab.
It happened Monday night while police officers were investigating the shooting of Josh Tribby in the area of 300 S. and 200 W. During the process of speaking with neighbors, officers approached the residence at 2520 S. 200 W, a home owned by Dillman.
Officers detected items and odors associated with the manufacturing of methamphetamine. Dillman was detained and a search warrant was obtained. Police soon found a large clandestine methamphetamine lab and contacted the Indiana State Police Meth Lab Team.
Dillman was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, possession of precursors with the intent to manufacture methamphetamine and maintaining a common nuisance. Ferrier was charged with maintaining a common nuisance.
Police said that the Montgomery County Sheriffs Office, Crawfordsville Police Department, Indiana State Police, Waynetown Police Department and Crawfordsville Fire Department worked together in the process.
