Ceylon Meth Lab Raided 16 Nov 12

Four residents of Ceylon are facing 1st-degree drug charges for allegedly operating a meth lab out of their home. 26-year-old Benjamin Louis Lubben had reportedly contacted authorities to inform them of the whereabouts of his brother, 27-year-old Dustin Wayne Lubben, who had a felony warrant out for his arrest. He was said to be staying at the Ceylon residence of 39-year-old Ryan Ray Menssen and 32-year-old Rachel Ruth Menssen, and police were informed that the manufacture of methamphetamine was taking place there as well. During surveillance of the home, Benjamin Lubben was seen leaving the residence with two large backpacks. He and the other 3 suspects were taken into custody after the Minnesota River Valley Drug Task Force executed a search warrant. Inside the home there was reportedly a portable meth lab, several propane containers, drug paraphernalia, and a baggie of synthetic marijuana. Officials also say that there was raw sewage in the basement and animal feces throughout the home, and 3 minor children also living there were taken into custody. All 4 suspects face up to 30 years in prison each and a million dollars in fines.
