NEWBURGH, IN (WFIE) -

Officials in Warrick County say four people have been arrested after deputies discover a meth lab in Newburgh.

Warrick County Deputies say responding to a tip they obtained a search warrant and arrested four persons at an active meth lab at the Franklin Place Apartments on the north edge of the town of Newburgh.

Authorities say when the deputies arrived at the scene they discovered two of the one pot meth labs that were actively cooking.

Officials say the Indiana State Police Clandestine Lab Team and the local Fire Department were called to the scene, and the entire apartment complex was evacuated for the safety of the residents.

Once the two vessels containing the active ingredients were removed from the apartment, residents were allowed to return to their apartments.

Deputies say 41-year-old Donald Villines, 20-year-old Kassandra Fulcher, 30-year-old Derrick Davis and 29-year-old Kara Frankenberger were arrested in connection with the meth lab.
