Two Peru residents were arrested on felony charges involving methamphetamine Sunday morning.
22-year-old Peter Buffington and a 17-year-old Peru girl were pulled over by State Police around 3am. The trooper smelled a chemical odor coming from the car and asked to search it. He then found methamphetamine and items to manufacture the drug inside the vehicle.
Buffington is being held in the Miami County Jail and charged with possession of meth and chemical precursors, conspiracy to manufacture meth, and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. The girl faces possession and intent charges, and was taken to a juvenile detention in Lafayette.
