Fort Wayne Police arrested on a 46-year-old woman Wednesday on five felony charges related to the production, sales or possession of methamphetamine.

Early Wednesday morning, police served a search warrant on Billie Sue Campbell at her apartment in the 900 block of Lincoln Avenue. They reported finding meth precursors, an active one-pot meth lab, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia at the home.

Campbell was charged with dealing meth, possession of two or more meth precursors, possession of methamphetamine, possession of paraphernalia and maintaining a common nuisance. Another woman arrested after the search was charged with two misdemeanors, possession of marijuana and visiting a common nuisance.

As a result of the house being condemned by the Fort Wayne-Allen County Health Department, a resident living in an upstairs apartment was forced out of his apartment and is being assisted by the Red Cross to find temporary housing, police said.
