Allegations involve manufacturing and possession of methamphetamine

On June 2, 2021 the Greensburg Police Department Intelligence Unit received a tip alleging that
Christopher Scott was actively involved in the manufacture and use of methamphetamine. Greensburg
Detectives began an investigation into these allegations with assistance from the Indiana State Police.
Further information was developed, leading to the discovery of items consistent with the manufacture
of methamphetamine in a publicly accessible area.
Detectives were able to determine that Mr. Scott was staying at the Briarwood Apartment Complex, and
located a vehicle registered to him at that location. Greensburg Police Department patrol units and K9s
were called to assist. Units went to speak to Mr. Scott at the apartment complex.
During the investigation search warrants were obtained for Mr. Scott’s vehicle and residence. Numerous
items related to the manufacture of methamphetamine were located, including an active
methamphetamine lab, chemicals, precursors, and reaction vessels. These items were located within
100 feet of a pool and within 215 feet of a playground while children were present.
Mr. Scott was taken into custody and faces preliminary charges involving allegations of:
Ct.1: Manufacturing Methamphetamine, Level 2 Felony
Ct.2: Possession of Methamphetamine, Level 3 Felony
Ct.3: Possession of Precursors, Level 6 Felony
Ct.4: Resisting Law Enforcement, Class A Misdemeanor
