Drug task force busts meth lab in Page, N.D.PAGE, N.D. – Two Page residents face multiple charges after authorities executing a search warrant found a meth lab inside a car parked in front of their house on Thursday, a detective said.
Robert Ingram, 43, and Jennifer Cuyle, 37, were home when the warrant was served and were arrested without incident after the lab was found in a duffle bag on the front passenger floorboard of the four-door car at about 3:25 p.m., said Detective Matt Giddings of the Cass County Sheriff’s Office.
Giddings said the meth lab used what’s known as the one-pot method, which involves a single plastic container used to mix ingredients.
The car was driven by both Ingram and Cuyle, who are in a relationship, he said.
Ingram and Cuyle were arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance with intent to manufacture, possession of drug paraphernalia and marijuana possession. Both also had outstanding warrants, Giddings said.
Authorities received a tip about the lab and had been working on the case for about two months, he said. It remains under investigation, but Giddings said no additional arrests are anticipated.
Meth labs have been found less often in the area in recent years because of laws restricting the sale of meth’s ingredients, he said.
