UPDATE: Jeremy Dale Knigga, 36, and Teresa Lynn Knigga, 41, remained jailed Tuesday, Jan. 15, at the Dearborn County Law Enforcement Center, Lawrenceburg, according to the sheriff's website
The Dearborn County Special Crimes Unit responded to a tip of a possible methamphetamine lab at the Kniggas' residence, 10457 Cole Lane, Aurora, around 8:15 p.m. Monday, Jan. 14, said Dearborn County Sheriff's Detective Shane McHenry. He, Rising Sun Det. Rodney Rimstidt and Dearborn County Detective Carl Pieczonka went to the residence.
"Once we got there I recognized some items I knew were involved in the manufacture of meth," said McHenry. The couple then consented to a search, and police found cold packs, ammonia pellets, sodium hydroxide, coffee filters, Sudaephedron, lithium batteries and Coleman fuel, all items used in methamphetamine manufacturing, he said. Two juveniles in the home were turned over to relatives.
"The lab was actually in a detached garage," said McHenry. He expects formal charges to be filed by noon Wednesday, Jan. 16.
Pieczonka and McHenry are both assigned to the special crimes unit.
Jeremy Knigga was booked at 10:24 p.m. Monday, Jan. 14, on a preliminary offense of manufacture of methamphetamine; Teresa Knigga was booked just before midnight on the offense of conspiracy.
Sources say the Kniggas provided child care at their residence.
