A man has pleaded guilty to a single drug charge as a result of an Allen County Drug Task Force search warrant last October at his Archer Avenue home.
Jesse D. Webb, 37, of the 800 block of Archer Avenue, pleaded guilty to unlawful possession of a syringe, a Level 6 felony, Tuesday in Allen Superior Court.
According to terms of the plea agreement, if accepted by a judge, Webb will be sentenced to two years on probation and counts of maintaining a common nuisance and possession of chemical reagents will be dismissed at sentencing, which takes place May 23 before Allen Superior Court Judge Wendy Davis.
Webb and Jamie M. Derkatsch were arrested in October after the Allen County Drug Task Force served a search warrant at their residence. Derkatsch failed to appear for a hearing on March 22, resulting in a warrant for her arrest.
The task force acted on a tip from the Drug Enforcement Administration and conducted surveillance, developed leads and worked with the Allen County Prosecutor's Office to obtain the search warrant, which revealed what police said was an active meth lab.
