WARSAW, Ind. (WANE)  Four people were arrested on meth charges after police acted on a tip and had undercover Warsaw Narcotics officers buy drugs.

After the undercover buy around 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, police stopped the suspect car near Winona Avenue and Lake Street in Warsaw.

Three people in the car were arrested and taken to the Kosciusko County Jail. 34-year-old, Chad Goble, of Mentone, and 31-year-old, George Prater, of Akron, both face class B felony charges of dealing methamphetamine. 21-year-old Barbara Fields was charged with visiting a common nuisance, a misdemeanor.

Police were then led to find 41-year-old, Roger Runyon, of South Bend, who had a warrant out for his arrest for an October 2013 meth lab found on Center Street in Warsaw. An Indiana State Police trooper found Runyon and pulled him over. Runyon had a white substance on him, which tested positive for meth. A search yielded meth, used meth labs, and items used to make meth.

Runyon faces charges for being a habitual traffic offender as well as class B felony charges of manufacturing methamphetamine.

Goble, Prater and Runyon were all being held in the Kosciusko County Jail with no bond.
