FRANKFORT, Ind. (WLFI)- Three people are behind bars after a drug bust in Frankfort. Police served a search warrant at a house in the 600 block of Elmwood Drive on Wednesday.

The warrant was obtained after an investigation revealed the residents were allegedly dealing drugs. Those arrested include 30-year-old Nicholas Ruiz of Frankfort. He faces charges of Dealing a Narcotic (Heroin), Dealing a Narcotic (Fentanyl), Possession of Narcotic Drug, Possession of Methamphetamine, and Maintaining a Common Nuisance.

32-year-old Stephanie Creasy of Frankfort was also arrested. She faces charges of dealing a Narcotic (Heroin), Possession of a Narcotic Drug, Possession of Methamphetamine, and Maintaining a Common Nuisance.

The third person arrested was 52-year-old Etta Miller. She is facing charges of dealing a Narcotic Drug (Fentanyl), Possession of a Narcotic Drug, and Maintaining a Common Nuisance.

Police say that during their investigation they witnessed an increase in traffic to and from the home. Frankfort Police Chief Scott Shoemaker says the heroin these individuals were allegedly selling was killing people.

“We are at 28 overdoses so far this year,” said Chief Shoemaker. “That doesn't sound like a lot maybe bigger communities there are more but last year we gad 34 for the entire year."

Shoemaker says there were two overdoses at the house in two months. Police hope that arresting these individuals will help reduce the number of overdoses in the community. The Clinton County Prosecutor will consider formal charges.
