WARSAW — During the execution of a covert surveillance operation conducted by NET 43, officers observed a suspicious vehicle at 7877 W Lovetts Lane, in the Hoffman Lake area. As officers approached the residence, Robert Boatwright, 28 Claypool, who was known to have several active arrest warrants, fled into the home.
Multiple officers responded to the area and established a perimeter. A Warsaw Police Department canine unit was requested and, upon entering the structure, detected the presence of human odor in the area of a built-in basement cabinet. Boatwright was discovered to be hiding within the cabinet, once the top was removed.
Officers obtained a search warrant, after observing narcotic paraphernalia in plain view. Narcotic scales, two handguns and methamphetamine were located inside of the home. Multiple arrests were made as a result of this ongoing investigation.
Boatwright is being charged with manufacturing/dealing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, resisting law enforcement, maintaining a common nuisance, parole violation and two counts of failure to appear.
Also arrested were the following:
- Seth Patrick Wright, 29, Bourbon, is being charged with possession of methamphetamine, false informing, visiting a common nuisance and a foreign warrant.
- Nicholas Andrew Irvine, 26, Tippecanoe, is being charged with possession of methamphetamine and visting a common nuisance.
- Lacey Rae Trowbridge, 27, Bourbon, is being charged with possession of methamphetamine and visting a common nuisance.
