MIDDLETOWN, OH (FOX19) -

Two men are behind bars after police responded to a Middletown apartment complex on reports of trespassing.

Just before 11 p.m. on Tuesday, Middletown Police Officers responded to 1644 Lamberton Street after the apartment manager reported the trespassing.

While knocking on the door, officers noticed heavy smoke coming from an upstairs window and used force of entry.

Brad Patton and Cody Tester, both from Middletown, were found inside. Officials are reporting that Tester was actively injecting a substance into his left forearm as officers approached him.

Special Operations Detectives, along with Ohio BCI responded to investigate the possibility of a meth lab on the premises after the Middletown Dire Dept. believed the heavy smoke being a result of chemical reaction.

Detectives did find chemicals and other items that are commonly used to manufacture meth inside of the apartment.

Patton was charged with Criminal Trespass, a 4th degree Misdemeanor, and Illegal Assembly of Chemicals, a 3rd degree felony.

Tester was charged with Criminal Trespass, Illegal Assembly of Chemicals and possession of a drug abuse instrument.
