Madison police arrested two people Friday night after finding five individual methamphetamine labs in an apartment.
Police received a tip about drug activity in the 2800 block of Windridge Drive and arrested Michal A. Morgan, 21, and Drew M. Kopcho, 24.
Morgan, the apartment's tenant, allowed officers to enter and search the residence, according to a news release from Chief Dan Thurston.
During the search, officers found several items consistent with the manufacture of meth and found five individual "one-pot" reaction vessel meth labs, which are the size of a plastic bottle, Thurston said.
Police notified the Indiana State Police Clandestine Lab Team to process the scene, Thurston said.
Morgan and Kopcho were arrested on charges of manufacturing meth within 1,000 feet of a housing complex, dealing meth within 1,000 feet of a housing complex, possession of a controlled substance, possession of paraphernalia and possession of precursors. They were taken to the Jefferson County Jail.
Senior Patrolman Joe Baker, Patrolman Jacob Schmidt and Patrolman Dylan Barnes responded to the complaint.
