INDIANAPOLIS - Ten people have been arrested and two more are wanted in connection with a scheme to sell drugs, guns and counterfeit goods at two Indianapolis businesses, police said.
Police began investigating in May after reports of drugs and guns being sold at Jonathan's Barbershop at 3939 N. Keystone Ave. and ReFurbAtronics at 3937 N. Keystone Ave.
Investigators also discovered pirated DVDs and counterfeit purses being sold at the shops, along with EBT cards being traded for services, police said.
Officers raided the businesses Thursday, seizing $6,700 in cash, five guns, marijuana, 68 flat screen TVs, pirated DVDs, multiple computers and 12 vehicles.
Ten people were arrested during the raid -- Jonathan Barker, Angela Barker, Jamarson Fitzgerald, Dashaun Bush, Dietrich Rhodes, Jomo Cole, Gordon Parker, Andrew Jefferson, Carlos Pope and Charles Henderson -- on charges of conspiracy to deal narcotics, conspiracy to commit welfare fraud, conspiracy to commit fraud and corrupt business influence.
Police were still searching for Gordon Parker and Carlos Pope on the same charges.
Four other people were arrested during the raid on unrelated charges, including possession of marijuana.
