The Fort Wayne Police Department on Friday afternoon released more details about an apparent meth-related investigation that featured an arrest early Friday morning.
According to a news release, the FWPD's Vice/Narcotics Division and Meth Lab Suppression Unit, along with the Emergency Services Team, originally went to a residence in the 4400 block of Turf Lane, which is in the Haverhill of Coventry addition off Aboite Center Road, around 7:09 a.m. in order to serve a narcotics search warrant.
Once officers arrived at the residence, they allegedly found evidence of manufacturing methamphetamine. That led to the arrest of Max Goff, who was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, possession of drug precursors, illegal dumping of hazardous waste, maintaining a common nuisance, neglect of a dependent, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia, the release said.
Also, a teenager was reportedly at the residence at the time of the police action; that person was placed in the care of the Department of Child Services.
Goff is being held on a bond of $57,750, according to the news release.
Multiple vehicles – with doors open, as if they were being prepared for a search – and a boat were in the driveway of the home on Turf Lane, while at least five police vehicles and a portable cleanup trailer were also present.
