The Porter County Sheriff’s Police has arrested a second person on drug charges in connection with the raid on Tuesday of a suspected methamphetamine lab in South Haven.

According to police, at 7 a.m. Thursday the Porter County Multi-Enforcement Group (MEG) took Christopher Jetmund, 28, into custody at his residence in the 700 block of Eagle Creek Road.

The PCSP said that MEG officers were responding to several tips--submitted to the PCSP’s tip line via the Internet--that Jetmund had returned to the residence one day after the raid “and was using narcotics on the front porch.”

Jetmund was charged with manufacturing methamphetamine and maintaining a common nuisance, the PCSP said.

On Tuesday, another resident at that address, Timothy Jetmund, was arrested on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine, maintaining a common nuisance, possession of a narcotic, and possession of a hypodermic.

The raid--conducted by MEG and assisted by the Indiana State Police’s Clandestine Lab Mobile Unit--recovered evidence indicating that meth was being produced on the property, the PCSP has said.

“Thank you to all our citizens for the cooperation and tips,” the PCSP said.
