The car was stocked with several items used to manufacture meth.
Benak and Brock were both booked into jail on various drug related charges.

Police say he turned himself in and has since been booked into LaGrange County Jail on several outstanding warrants and additional charges of Possession of Methamphetamine, Possession of Precursors with intent to Manufacture Methamphetamine, Maintaining a Common Nuisance, Resisting Law Enforcement with a Motor Vehicle, and Leaving the Scene of a Property Damage Accident.
Adkins is being held with no bond.
