Meth lab busted in Defiance

Five people were arrested in Fulton County and an active meth lab was discovered in Defiance Tuesday afternoon. Fulton County Sheriff Roy Miller reported Wednesday that his office received a call of suspicious activity on U.S. 20A near County Road 5. Deputies were given a description of the vehicle which was located in a business drive east of Delta in Swancreek Township.

During a joint investigation, deputies and Delta police officers found that the suspects’ vehicle was reported stolen out of Montpelier. Five suspects were then arrested on various charges and warrants as follows: • James Black, 18, of Bryan, breaking and entering. • Kylie Cranson, 19, of Bryan, possession of drug instruments. • Misty Lane, 28, of Edgerton, out-of-county warrant. • Tristen Reynolds, 22, of West Unity, possession of drug instruments. • Schuylar Winkler, 21, of Defiance, parole violation.

The arrests led to the Multi-Area Narcotics (MAN) Unit being called and the discovery of an active meth lab at 424 Rulf St., Defiance. The Multi-Area Narcotics Unit dismantled multiple meth labs at the residence. The MAN Unit was assisted at the scene by Defiance Police Department and Defiance Fire Department. The press release indicated that more charges are likely after the prosecutor reviews the case
