        LEBANON — Two people will be arraigned this morning following the weekend bust of a methamphetamine lab in Deerfield Township.

        Warren County sheriff's deputies who were dispatched Saturday to investigate a parking complaint on Shore Drive learned of a possible meth lab at the same address, county officials said.

        The county drug task force was called in when two people inside the home's detached garage — the location of the suspected lab — refused to leave.

        Frank Kruse and James Morse, both of Shore Drive, were arrested inside the garage, according to task force commander John Burke. Two others — Clara Morse and Scott Mills, both also of Shore Drive — are being sought by police in connection with the lab.

        Mr. Kruse, already awaiting trial on a charge of making meth, has been charged with illegal manufacture of drugs, attempted illegal manufacture and possession. He remained in the Warren County Jail for lack of a $100,000 cash bond.

        Mr. Morse was charged with complicity to make drugs and possession. He was jailed in lieu of a $25,000 bond.

        Ms. Morse has been charged with complicity to make drugs and possession. Mr. Mills has been charged with illegally making drugs, attempted illegal manufacture and possession.
