Early May, the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office received a complaint of methamphetamine usage, in the presence of children. The information deputies collected was passed on to Net 43, initiating a narcotics investigation. Because of a methodical and comprehensive operation by Net 43, officers were able to secure a search warrant for the property.
At 4 p.m. Thursday, with the assistance of Indiana State Police SWAT, Net 43 raided the home. Due to the thorough nature of the research completed by Net 43, the search warrant was executed with the knowledge that the children were not in the house. Methamphetamine, paraphernalia, scales and ammunition were found in the residence.
The four persons arrested were transported to the Kosciusko County Jail.
Net 43 was assisted by the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office, Milford Police and Syracuse Police departments, Indiana State Police and Lutheran EMS.
