North Judson Man Admits Housing Meth Labs To Police

A North Judson man was arrested Tuesday after police found two methamphetamine labs inside his home.

Starke County police and a North Judson police officer responded to a trailer home at 5097 S. A St. in North Judson after an anonymous tip was received about a possible meth lab inside that residence.

Police knocked on the door and Algin Trent answered. The officers immediately noticed a strong chemical smell and questioned Trent about the call of a possible meth lab inside the residence. He allegedly told police that there was a meth lab inside the home, and he was taken into custody and the officers did a quick protective sweep of the house for safety and called the Indiana State Police Clandestine Lab team to clear the scene.

Algin Trent was arrested on preliminary charges of Dealing in Methamphetamine, Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of Precursors, and Possession of 10 or more grams of pseudoephedrine.
