KOSCIUSKO COUNTY, Ind. (21Alive) -- A Silver Lake man was arrested Tuesday afternoon after Kosciusko County Drug Task Force officers located him outside his residence shaking an active “one-pot” meth lab.

Kosciusko County Drug Task Force officers were attempting to execute a search warrant Tuesday afternoon at a home in the 12500 block of South, CR 700 West, in Silver Lake, when upon arrival they witnessed the homeowner outside of the residence shaking a “one-pot method” methamphetamine lab.

Ronald Lee Bailey, 45, was immediately taken into custody by deputies and arrested on a preliminary charge of felony manufacturing methamphetamine. The Indiana State Police Clandestine Lab Team was also summoned to the scene to secure the lab as well as other precursor items associated with the production of the methamphetamine.

Bailey is currently being held on a $20,000 bond in the Kosciusko County Jail.
