The hard work of Posey County law enforcement has again paid dividends.
In October of 2012, the Posey County Drug Task Force obtained a search warrant for the residence of Tobias Payne located on Nettleton Street in Mount Vernon. During the execution of the search warrant by personnel of the Posey County Drug Task Force, the Mount Vernon Police Department and the Posey County Sheriff’s Department, officers discovered a clandestine methamphetamine laboratory inside the home. No one was home at the time the search warrant was executed.
Task Force personnel processed the meth lab with items of evidence later sent to the Indiana State Police Laboratory Division for analysis.
On March 22, 2013, results of the analysis were completed and forwarded to the local drug task force at which time an arrest warrant was obtained for Payne, age 36.
Later the same day, personnel of the Posey County Drug Task Force, the Mount Vernon Police Department and the Posey County Sheriff’s Department traveled to the Mount Vernon residence at which time no one would respond to officers at the door. Forced entry was gained into the home at which time officers located Tobias Payne inside along with a female subject later identified as Lacey L. Waters, age 22, also of Mount Vernon.
Payne was taken into custody on the active arrest warrant for manufacturing meth and is being lodged in the Posey County Jail. While at the scene, Lacey Waters was confirmed to have an active arrest warrant for failure to appear in Vanderburgh County after which time she was also taken into custody and transported to the county jail awaiting transfer to the Vanderburgh County Jail.
