BUTLER COUNTY, OH (FOX19) -
A Butler County meth lab was busted after a suspect called 911, reports Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones.
The meth lab was discovered in the 1700 block of Morman Rd, Hanover Township, by the Butler County Regional Narcotics (BURN) Taskforce Saturday afternoon.
“Someone called 9-1-1 from the residence and laid the phone down. The dispatcher tried to get someone’s attention with no success so she sent them a text message to let them know they had an open line.” A second call came in from the residence indicating that there was an emergency and to send help. The only “emergency” we saw was the meth lab,” said Sergeant Owens.
Joshua Angelo, 22, and Robby Brewer, 22, were both arrested and charged with production of methamphetamine and assembly of chemicals, both felony charges, according to Sheriff Jones.
Officials say deputies also located numerous prescription drugs, additional contraband and meth related chemicals at the residence.
“It makes our job easy when the bad guys call us to stop their illegal business. Unfortunately for them, it did not keep them out of jail. Great job by BURN and the road patrol locating this quick before it could cause harm,” said Sheriff Jones, in a prepared release.
