An informant, a notorious increase in drug-related overdoses, and anonymous tips lead authorities to uncover a drug trafficking enterprise and meth lab in South Haven, Indiana, on Tuesday.

Reports indicated that the Porter County Multi-Enforcement Group and a number of Porter County Officers entered and searched a home, according to Indiana105. com.

Law enforcement officials said several items were recovered inside showing narcotics use and the production of meth. A resident of the home, 23-year-old Timothy Jetmund, was taken into custody at a nearby business where he was in possession of meth.

Authorities said intelligence collected before and at the scene pointed MEG Detectives to believe they unveiled a Drug Trafficking Operation where two people operated the production of meth and organized others to purchase pseudoephedrine and lithium batteries in exchange for the drugs. The investigation is still ongoing.

Indiana State Police Clandestine Mobile Unit was on the scene for about 8 hours collecting evidence and making sure that the residence was safe.

Police officials said Timothy Jetmund was taken into custody without incident on a litany of felony charges, including counts of Manufacturing Meth, Maintaining a Common Nuisance, Possession of Narcotics, and Possession of Hypodermic Needles.
