WINNEBAGO COUNTY - Three people were arrested Monday as part of a methamphetamine investigation in Winnebago County.

The sheriff's department says a search warrant was served at a site near Pickett in the Town of Utica. Officers found two locations. One was an abandoned building.

The other was a home which is now marked by signs saying it's unsafe to live in.

The two site busts were the sixth and seventh in Winnebago County this year, compared to four last year.

Police say more information will be released after recommended charges are reviewed by the district attorney.
