FULTON COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Detectives found money, drugs and guns after a narcotics investigation led them to a home in rural Arkron, Indiana.

On Thursday morning at around 9 a.m., detectives with the Indiana State Police Drug Enforcement Section served a search warrant to 30-year-old Jacob Ashley and 28-year-old Samantha Shephard.

Police say a search of the home turned up around three-quarters of a pound of methamphetamine, marijuana, prescription medication, 12 firearms, and $1,248 in cash.

The two were taken to Fulton County Jail on preliminary charges of dealing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, maintaining a common nuisance, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia, and three counts each for possession of a controlled substance.

The Rochester Police Department and the Fulton County Sheriff’s Department assisted with the investigation.

The investigation is ongoing.
