Meth Lab Discovered in Ellwood
According to the criminal complaint, on November 23 officers were dispatched to Smokin Dave’s Barbecue in reference to the owner having three suspicious persons exit a vehicle and walk toward railroad property carrying assorted bags.
The officer made contact with one of the individuals, April Squires, 34, of Summit Ave., who was walking away from several of the bags left in the alleyway of North and Franklin, and asked her what was going on. She stated that she had got a ride from the other two individuals and she was now walking home.
The officer located a black box in one of the bags which contained personal property to Squires and a new box of Sudafed. Squires admitted that the narcotic kit in the bag was hers and that there was methamphetamine in the foil. The kit also included syringes, a spoon, and cotton balls.
One of the other individuals, Jordan Dimuccio, was located and arrested with Squires because he had an active warrant for his arrest.
Squires advised the officers that she uses meth with Mr. Lordo Jr., who lives on Johnston Dr. and she further stated that he makes meth in his garage.
Officers went to Lordo’s residence where the front door was wide open and officers could view open syringes, Coleman fuel cans, lithium batteries, heating elements, and items commonly used in the manufacturing of methamphetamine.
Lordo said he has a drug problem and he makes and uses meth in the garage. Lordo was advised by officers that they would be applying for a search warrant.
Squires is facing charges of possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of controlled substance for this instance and is further facing another count of possession of drug paraphernalia after an incident that occurred in July.
