(FRENCH LICK) - Two Orange County men were arrested on drug charges after police discovered meth labs at a French Lick home.

Frank Willyard and Brandon Necaise, both 37, were arrested on charges of dealing, manufacturing and possession of meth and possession of precursors. Both men are being held in the Orange County jail without bond.

According to a new release from the French Lick Police Departments, officers from French Lick, the Paoli Police Department, the Orange County Sheriff's Department and Indiana State Police, served a warrant at a home in French Lick around noon on Thursday.

Inside the home they found a number of one-pot meth labs in the basement and also found meth and drug paraphernalia.

Outside the home officers found a trail going into the woods and followed it where they found a dump site containing multiple discarded one-pot meth labs and hazardous materials associated with making meth.

The Indiana State Police Meth Suppression Team was called to the scene to collect and secure the meth labs and discard of the toxic meth trash.

Child Protective Services personnel were also called to the scene because children were living in the home.

The news release reports the investigation is continuing and more arrests are expected.

Police urge county residents to report any suspicious activity that could be related to meth manufacturing. Warmer weather will bring with it the possibility that with an increase in walking, jogging or bike riding in rural areas, someone could come across a meth lab or trash left behind by those who have manufactured meth. Police remind local residents that the trash from outdoor meth labs contains chemicals that are toxic, flammable, corrosive and acidic and that when mixed together, the chemicals are highly explosive. In addition, the fumes are toxic and can cause internal damage to organs.

Suspicious activity or materials should be reported to a local law enforcement agency.
