Serving of warrants leads to arrest of LaGrange woman


A man and two women were arrested early Wednesday morning at a rural Kendallville residence after Indiana State Police (ISP) troopers, who were looking to serve arrest warrants on the male subject, located a meth lab and other narcotics in the residence. One of the two women arrested was reported to be from LaGrange.

According to the police report, at approximately 1:30 a.m. on April 25, two ISP troopers went to a residence in the 100 block of Miller Road after receiving information that Charles J. Wuest, 27, of Ft. Wayne was at that location. Wuest was wanted in Allen County on multiple charges, which included possession of cocaine, battery, possession of paraphernalia, and resisting law enforcement.

Upon officers’ arrival at the residence, they spoke with someone at the residence who confirmed that Wuest was in a bedroom in the rear of the residence. As officers made their way inside the residence to take Wuest into custody, they observed illegal narcotics in plain view. A search warrant was then applied for and served. As a result of the search, a one-pot reaction vessel, meth, meth precursors and marijuana were found. The Indiana State Police Clandestine Laboratory Team was called to assist with the meth lab.

Two females at the residence were also arrested. Jilyan J. Snyder, 29, of Hudson was arrested on a warrant from the Department of Corrections and Kayla D. Wallace, 21, of LaGrange was arrested by the Kendallville Police Department for possession of marijuana.

All three were taken to the Noble County Jail.

Assisting the ISP officers was the Noble County Prosecutor’s Office, the Kendallville Police, Avilla Police, and Noble County Sheriff’s Department.

This case remains under investigation.
