LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- Police say they recovered seven pounds of methamphetamine after a Clinton County traffic stop led to a Lafayette home.

Police say two people were stopped in the 5200 block of U.S. 52 Tuesday. They were both arrested after officers say they found two pounds of meth in the car.

The investigation led officers to a home on Main Street in Lafayette. They served a warrant there in the early morning hours of July 11th, and recovered another 5 pounds of meth. They also found a juvenile in the home who has been put in the custody of DCS.

The two people in the car that was initially stopped face federal drug charges. One has been identified as Gerardo Guzman-Ortiz. The other person has not been identified yet. They are in federal custody and no mug shots are available at this time.

Lafayette police are still asking anyone with more information on this case to come forward. You can get in touch anonymously by calling the Drug Task Force hotline at 765-807-1670, or the We-Tip Hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME.
