JOHNSON COUNTY, Ind. – At least 10 people were arrested in Johnson County after the Sheriff’s Office received a tip that drugs were being traded for a stolen handgun.

On Friday, detectives and deputies of the sheriff’s office responded to the 4300 block of Messersmith Drive and detained at least 10 people while they obtained a search warrant.

Once they obtained the search warrant, detectives and deputies located methamphetamine, marijuana, paraphernalia, butane torches, and several firearms—including the stolen shotgun they were looking for.

Deputies also located a 9mm handgun hidden in a wheel well of a vehicle in the driveway.

At this time, the 10 people inside the residence have been charged with visiting a common nuisance. Additional charges may be filed later by detectives from the sheriff’s office.
