LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Federal charges have been filed against a Lafayette man accused of selling drugs out of his home on Longlois Drive.

The charges could include a tougher sentence since the alleged crimes happened within 1,000 feet of an elementary school - that being Vinton Elementary.

News 18 first reported the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency raided the home yesterday and found 129 grams of meth.
Neighbors told us they had always suspected illegal activity there.

Now prosecutors say the person taken into custody was 37-year-old Geoffrey Martin.

He's accused of also selling meth in Rensselaer. 

Tippecanoe, White, and Jasper counties all worked with the DEA on the investigation.
