• Search Warrant Service Uncovers Red Phosphorus Meth Lab

    February 11, 2014 No comments

    Monday morning at approximately 8:30 a.m., Indiana State Police Officers from the Cyber Crimes
    Unit assisted the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department with the service
    of a search warrant at 3330 West Mooresville Road, Indianapolis.

    During the course of the investigation a suspected clandestine lab was observed
    in another outside building and a search warrant was applied for by the Indiana
    State Police Meth Suppression Section. After receiving the warrant, officers
    located items commonly used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine utilizing
    the red phosphorus method.

    The red phosphorus method of manufacturing methamphetamine is extremely
    dangerous due to the possibility of toxic gases and explosions. However,
    Trooper Tom Egler, of the ISP Meth Suppression Section, said this lab was not
    active today and the surrounding neighbors were not in any danger. No
    evacuations were experienced due to the lab being discovered.

    Indiana State Police arrested Sheridan Tom, 41, 3330 W. Mooresville Road,
    Indianapolis and transported him to the Marion County Arrestee Processing
    Center. He faces charges of Manufacturing of Methamphetamine, Class B Felony,
    Possession of Precursors, Class D Felony and Maintaining a Common Nuisance,
    Class D Felony.

    The mission of the Meth Suppression Section is to pro-actively investigate
    methamphetamine crimes in communities all over the state of Indiana. MSS
    utilizes a three pronged approach by focusing on enforcement, education, and
    the creation of partnerships. You can report suspected drug activity
    anonymously at www.meth.in.gov or 1-800-453-4756.

    Information requests regarding the Cyber Crimes search warrant should be
    directed to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department.
