4 are arrested after raid on suspected area meth lab in Montpelier

MONTPELIER, Ohio - Four men were arrested early yesterday morning at a local house after they were found to be operating a suspected methamphetamine lab, the Williams County Sheriff's Office said.

Acting on a tip from an anonymous caller who complained to Montpelier police that a strange chemical odor was coming from 704 Mill St., authorities searched the residence at about 1 a.m. They found an active production site, also known as a "cook," for methamphetamine, an addictive stimulant drug that affects the central nervous system.

Arrested were Robert Mitchell, 34, of Montpelier; Michael Metzger, 37, of Stryker, Ohio; Ryan Hartman, 30, of Montpelier, and Douglas Osmun, 35, of West Unity, Ohio.

All four were charged with illegal manufacturing of drugs. They are being held in the Corrections Center of Northwest Ohio near Stryker pending arraignment in Bryan Municipal Court.

Montpelier police, sheriff's deputies, and the Multi-Area Narcotics Task Force participated in the investigation.
