DELAVAN—Walworth County authorities say they have arrested three people for running what they believe was a methamphetamine operation in a Delavan apartment.

Delavan Police and Walworth County Sheriff's Office deputies discovered evidence of methamphetamine manufacturing at an apartment at 407 ½ Main Street, Delavan, on Monday, according to a release from the Walworth County Sheriff's Office Drug Investigation Unit.

The discovery came while police were looking for Danial Carpenter, 30, Delavan, according to the news release.

Police found Carpenter at the apartment, and detained him and two other people, a Jennifer L. Volp, 30, Delavan, and Paul M. Schmitt, 54, Delavan, all on suspicion of delivering methamphetamine, possessing methamphetamine waste, and for manufacturing methamphetamine, and possessing methamphetamine equipment.

Schmitt will have charges forwarded to the Walworth County District Attorney's office, according to the release.

The release said the apartment had “signs” of methamphetamine manufacturing, but did not give more details. Deputies ventilated the apartment, pending a further search and decontamination by a Drug Enforcement Agency team and the Delavan Fire Department.

Investigators collected items from the apartment for lab testing.
