A Huron County grand jury indicted Allen E. Mobberly, 32, of 37H Bouscay Ave., in connection with one count of possession of methamphetamine in connection with the operation of a meth lab in his apartment.

He was one of 12 people indicted Friday.

Authorities found the active meth lab when they raided his apartment in late March. A fire started during the raid, and Norwalk firefighters -- who were called to the area to be on standby prior to the raid -- quickly extinguished it.

The possession charge stems from residue allegedly in Mobberly's possession that recently tested positive for the drug while authorities investigated the meth lab, Woodruff said.

Mobberly was previously charged with endangering children and permitting drug abuse. Norwalk Police Chief Dave Light has said a boy complained of a "burning sensation" in his lungs after he played in the apartment. Authorities also identified Mobberly as the father of a boy who was there when the fire started and "the person who had control of the apartment where the methamphetamine was being manufactured."

Mobberly's co-defendants are James J. Arthur II, 29, of New Haven, and Paul D. Prince, 33, of Mansfield. They were previously indicted.

Arthur and Prince each are scheduled to stand trial on charges of one count each of manufacture of methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine and possession of criminal tools. Their trials are scheduled for trial May 28 in Huron County Common Pleas Court.

If convicted of all three charges, they face as much as 23 years in prison. The manufacturing charge, a first-degree felony, comes with a mandatory minimum of four years in prison.
