Two Plymouth residents were arrested Wednesday morning after a seven-month investigation by the Indiana State Criminal Interdiction Team.

Justin Felix, 30, and Stephanie Whitesell, 24, were arrested on methamphetamine-related charges at a home in the 900 block of West Harrison Street in Plymouth, according to a news release from the Indiana State Police.

A 2-year-old boy and a 4-year-old girl were also in the home at the time. Both children were taken into the custody of the Department of Child Services.

Police began their investigation in February when the Marshall County Probation Department reported that methamphetamine was possibly being manufactured and used in the home.

After investigating further and obtaining a search warrant, the Indiana State Police Emergency Response Team executed the warrant and found items used to manufacture the methamphetamine in the home.

It was apparent to police that both Felix and Whitesell were involved with manufacturing methamphetamine in the home, according to the news release.

They were booked at the Marshall County Jail.
