State police discover 4th meth lab in 2 months in Indiana County

State police are continuing an investigation into a suspected methamphetamine lab discovered Monday inside a West Wheatfield Township residence in Indiana County near the Westmoreland County border.

Troop A spokesman Cliff Greenfield said the lab was discovered about 1:50 p.m. at 91 Caroline St. in the village of Robinson. Greenfield said police received information there was methamphetamine being manufactured in the area.

“Upon arrival, troopers obtained consent to search. During the search, troopers located several items that are consistent with the clandestine manufacturing of methamphetamine,” Greenfield said.

Greenfield said the State Police Clandestine Laboratory Response Team collected and processed items used to manufacture methamphetamine inside and outside the residence, where two juveniles under the age of 7 were discovered.

Greenfield said multiple criminal charges of manufacturing and possessing a controlled substance and child endangerment are pending against a 31-year-old Robinson woman and a 33-year-old man from New Florence, Westmoreland County.

In January, state police arrested eight people after finding items related to the manufacturing of methamphetamine at three separate Indiana County locations in Ernest, Washington Township, East Wheatfield Township, and a “one pot” lab in the trunk of a car in Burrell Township.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
