Kosciusko County – A two week investigation by the Indiana State Police with the assistance of the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Department, Warsaw Police Department, Winona Lake Police Department, and the North Webster Police Department, culminated with the arrest of three North Webster residents.
State police and local officers served a search warrant at a North Webster home located at 5489 North 900 East, Tuesday night. Once inside police discovered a multitude of methamphetamine drug paraphernalia along with meth that had just recently been cooked and a 5-year old child.
State police arrested 28-year-old Skyler Cain and 30-year-old Joshua Howey, residents at the home, on several meth related charges to include possession of methamphetamine, possession of precursors, and manufacturing meth in the presence of a child.
The five-year old child of Cain and Howey was removed from the home by police and is now in the care of the Department of Child Services. Both Cain and Howey face additional felony charges of neglect of a dependant.
Also living at the residence, Casey Louden, 28, was arrested for manufacturing meth in the presence of a child, possession methamphetamine, and possession of precursors.

The state police has recently refocused its effort to combat the meth and heroine epidemic that is taking over our community, commented Indiana State Police Meth Suppression Trooper Andy Cochran. We are training and dedicating more troopers in this fight and working closely with other agencies in an effort to stop the spread of this disease.
