MIDDLEPORT — It was a busy morning for officers with the Middleport Police Department and the Middleport Fire Department.
Officials discovered methamphetamine labs at two separate residences within the village on Wednesday morning — the first meth labs discovered by authorities in 2013.
According to Shannon Smith of the Middleport Police Department, officers responded to 383 Park Street just before 1 a.m., and after conducting a trash pull found two “shake and bake” one-pot methamphetamine labs.
Just after 8 a.m. on Wednesday, officers, after conducting a second trash pull, executed a search warrant at 326 Pearl Street.
Officers located 11 one-pot meth labs at the address.
Two individuals were arrested at the scene of the second lab.
Arrested at the scene were Sara Craig, 32, and Ianzoe Herman, 30. Shannon Smith said both are charged with manufacturing and could face other charges. Both were in the custody of the Middleport Police Department as of press time.
Middleport officers trained in neutralizing meth labs, Rick Smith, Joel Lynch and Shannon Smith, worked to neutralize the chemicals at the scene.
The Middleport Fire Department was called to assist in securing the scene while officers neutralized the chemicals.
Charges in the case are pending, according to Shannon Smith.
