Man indicted for Jackson Township meth lab

Warren Seitz was arrested after a meth lab bust in Jackson Township.

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — A Jackson Township man is facing three felony charges after being indicted Thursday in connection to a methamphetamine lab found at his mobile home in April.

Warren Seitz, 48, was arrested April 24 after a raid at his mobile home at Shephards Mobile Home Park off Mahoning Avenue in Jackson Township. Police said he lived there with his 70-year-old mother.

Police believe Seitz had been making methamphetamine for several months before the raid. At the time, he was on parole for a drug conviction in Columbiana County.

Seitz was indicted on one count each of illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs, illegal manufacture of drugs and drug possession. The drug manufacturing charges are elevated to first-degree and second-degree felonies because Seitz allegedly was making the drug in an area where children were present.
