7/1 Drug Arrest in Allenton Leads to Meth Lab Bust in Oshkosh

After stopping a 33-year-old woman and 32-year-old man, both from Oshkosh, for drug possession last Thursday night, Washington County Sheriff deputies were able to tip off Oshkosh Police about a possible meth lab. According to the report from Lieutenant Martin Schulteiss, a deputy went to the Sai Mart Mobil on Church Street in Allenton for a report of a possible stolen vehicle.  Upon arrival, the deputy made contact with four people and the vehicle.  It turned out that the vehicle was not stolen; however the deputy located multiple signs of drug use in the vehicle.  A subsequent search found 125 pseudoephedrine pills on a 32 year old Oshkosh man. Another search yielded a small bag of what appeared to be Meth. He was later arrested for possessing materials to manufacture meth. A 33 year old Oshkosh woman was also arrested for party to a crime of possession of materials to manufacture meth.   During questioning, the woman admitted to having knowledge of people cooking meth at her home. Deputies alerted the Oshkosh Police, who went to the home on Friday and did find a meth lab operating out of the garage of her home. Arrests were still pending over the weekend. A Federal Drug unit clean-up crew from Chicago, Illinois disposed of  the chemicals from the lab.
