Trooper Brandon Farias began an investigation in February after learning about possible drug activity at the residence located at 5009 East Shoreline Drive in Floyds Knobs.

Troopers used information gathered in that investigation and requested a search warrant for the home.

On Friday, the ACP team and Indiana State Police Drug Enforcement officers served the warrant.  

During the search, troopers located an AR-style pistol with an obliterated serial number, a red-phosphorus methamphetamine lab, approximately 16 grams of methamphetamine, other controlled substances, and about 2.85 pounds of marijuana. Troopers also learned that children resided in the house.
