TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — A convicted felon on house arrest has been charged after drugs and paraphernalia were found in his home.

Court documents say that on Oct. 14, a corrections officer arrived at the South Seventh Street apartment of 33-year-old Cory A. Smith for a home inspection.

The officer found over 28 grams of methamphetamine as well as digital scales, syringes and baggies hidden in a backpack in the closet. A large amount of cash was also discovered along with baggies containing heroin.

A woman and her 2-year-old child were in the apartment, however, she said she was not aware of the presence of drugs.

Smith says that he was holding the drugs for someone else. Court records show that he did have a prior conviction on dealing-related charges.

Smith has been charged with dealing in methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, possession of a narcotic drug, unlawful possession of a syringe, possession of paraphernalia, maintaining a common nuisance - controlled substances and information of habitual offender.
