RACINE — Two people were arrested on Tuesday after a methamphetamine lab was located at a residence in Racine.
Sheriff Keith O. Wood reports deputies located a methamphetamine lab at the residence of Russell Reiber, age 32, and Jaclyn Caldwell, age 23, of Fifth Street, Racine.
Deputies responded with the Department of Jobs and Family Services on a complaint of drug activity at the residence and discovered two one-pot reactionary vessels after a consent search was obtained by deputies.
Several precursors which are used for the manufacturing of methamphetamine were located within the residence along with drug paraphernalia.
It was reported a three year old female child was present and resides in the residence.
Both Reiber and Caldwell are charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, a felony of the second degree, according to the complaint filed in Meigs County Court.
Reiber and Caldwell both appeared in Meigs County Court on Wednesday for an initial appearance. Bond for both was set at $25,000 with 10 percent permitted.
Trenton Cleland was appointed to represent Reiber, and Jeremy Fisher was appointed to represent Caldwell.
Both are scheduled for a preliminary hearing at 11:30 a.m. on Dec. 12.
Reiber is being held at the Meigs County Jail and Caldwell is incarcerated at the Middleport Jail.
Other agencies assisting were the Athens County Sheriff’s Office and the Middleport Police Department, for neutralization of the methamphetamine lab, and the Racine Fire Department.
