A report of a suspicious vehicle leads police to stopping a potential meth operation.

After receiving a report of suspicious activity on Wednesday evening, deputies with the Ripley County Sheriffs Office arrived to the scene on County Road 425N in Osgood and located several people.

As the investigation continued, police say they located, what they believed to be, a meth manufacturing operation inside a vehicle that the people were in.

Giana Getz, 26, and Travis Manlief, 27, both of Greensburg were arrested along with 54-year-old Allen Herbert of Millhousen.

All three were arrested for manufacturing methamphetamine.

Sheriff Tom Grills says, “The investigation to this point has been forwarded to the Ripley County Prosecutor Office for formal charging.”

The Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Osgood Police Department, and the Indiana State Police Methamphetamine Suppression Team.
