Indiana State Police troopers went to the Cannelton-area home of 31-year-old Bonnie and 29-year-old Michael Harrison at about 1 p.m. for a probation search of their residence along State Road 166. The troopers said that after meeting the Harrisons, they located methamphetamine, marijuana, paraphernalia and multiple items commonly associated with the manufacturing of meth.

The Harrisons were arrested without incident after the preliminary search of the residence and transported to the Perry County Jail.

Next, police obtained a search warrant to continue searching the property. The investigation that followed led to an active clandestine lab in a trailer, as well as additional amounts of meth and other paraphernalia.

Law enforcement officers, including troopers assigned to the meth suppression section, spent a total of six hours processing the scene and disassembling and safely removing the clandestine lab.

Preliminary charges against both Bonnie and Michael Harrison include Class B felony counts of manufacturing methamphetamine, Class D felony counts of maintaining a common nuisance, possession of precursors and possession of methamphetamine, plus misdemeanor counts of marijuana possession and possession of paraphernalia.

Police said Bonnie Harrison also was served an active probation warrant through Perry County.
