Sheriff's Department shuts down alleged Millhousen meth lab

MILLHOUSEN – A tip from concerned citizens led to the arrest of three individuals Sunday at a Millhousen residence authorities say housed an active methamphetamine laboratory.

According to an affidavit of probable cause and charging information filed Tuesday in the Decatur Superior Court, Kevin J. Kilgore, 22, Kyle J. Waggoner, 24, and Cassandra C. Hellmich, 21, all face charges of dealing (manufacture) of methamphetamine, a class “A” felony.

Waggoner and Hellmich share additional charges of possession of a narcotic drug (class “B” felony) and possession of a controlled substance, a class “C” felony.

Kilgore, in addition to the manufacturing methamphetamine charge, faces a single count of possession of methamphetamine, a class “B” felony. His two prior substance abuse-related convictions have led prosecutors to add a habitual substance offender sentence enhancement to his charges.

According to court documents, Kilgore was arrested and later convicted of operating a vehicle while intoxicated in 2010, and he was convicted of possession of marijuana last year. Both were misdemeanor charges.

Sunday’s arrests stemmed from a phone call from concerned Decatur County citizens who informed Sheriff Greg Allen that they believed the suspects were actively involved in the production and use of methamphetamine in their rented home located at 8456 South County Road 240 East. The information led sheriff’s deputies to seek a search warrant which was authorized by Judge Matthew Bailey Sunday.

Deputies executed the search warrant shortly before 5 p.m. Sunday at the residence, which is located within 1,000 feet of Millhousen Park, with the assistance of the Indiana State Police Meth Suppression Team. During the search, investigators found numerous items associated with the manufacture and use of methamphetamine.

According to a police report summarizing the case, law enforcement officials discovered multiple syringes, methadone, heroin and a plethora of other items indicating drug use. A field test conducted on coffee filters at the residence tested positive for methamphetamine. The State Police Meth Suppression Team disassembled the methamphetamine lab which was located in the home’s garage.
