Two arrested on meth charges in Genoa City
VILLAGE OF GENOA CITY—Two people were being held at the Walworth County Jail after being arrested Sunday on methamphetamine charges.
Patrick J. Weingandt, 19, and Jesse J. Kruzinski, 35, were arrested Sunday after the Walworth County Drug Unit and Genoa City Police Department discovered methamphetamine labs in apartments No. 202 and No. 204 at 1201 County H in the village of Genoa City, according to a sheriff's office release.
Each was arrested on felonies manufacturing meth and possession of meth waste.
The Genoa City police asked the drug unit to assist with a drug investigation at the apartment complex early Sunday morning. The drug unit responded at about 10 a.m., sheriff's office Capt. Rob Hall said.
The exact addresses of the two men could not be obtained by press time, but the two live in one of the two apartments where the meth labs were found, Hall said.
Hall could not speculate how much meth was removed from the apartments, but he said it was the typical dangerous and potentially explosive one-pot method seen in the Walworth County.
The Drug Enforcement Agency clandestine lab team removed manufacturing materials from the apartments and cleared the scene Monday afternoon. A hazmat team was expected Monday evening to pick up and remove the waste, Hall said.
Bloomfield and Genoa City Fire and Rescue also responded.
