Knox County – Indiana State Police arrested a husband and wife early this morning for manufacturing meth and several other drug offenses after arresting their son for an outstanding Knox County warrant.
Shortly after midnight, Indiana State Police and the U.S. Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force responded to 702 West 3rd Street in Bicknell to serve an arrest warrant for Ronnie Chambers, 43, of Vincennes. Troopers had received information that Chambers was at his parent’s residence. A warrant had been issued for his arrest for failing to return to detention when required. When officers entered the residence they located and arrested Ronnie Chambers without incident. While inside the residence troopers observed drug paraphernalia in plain view. After a search warrant for the residence was obtained troopers searched the property and found meth, marijuana, synthetic marijuana and 10 one-pot meth labs. The homeowners, Howard Chambers, 61, and his wife, Robin Chambers, 52, were arrested for manufacturing meth and several other drug offenses. Troopers also arrested Samuel Chambers, 19, and Paul McGriffen, 57, both from Bickell, for visiting a common nuisance. All four Chambers are still being held on bond in the Knox County Jail.
