IMPDINDIANAPOLIS– Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) Northwest District Narcotics/Vice detectives secured a Search Warrant which net cash, firearms, narcotics, and arrests.

On October 22, 2016, just after 9:00 a.m., Northwest Narcotics/Vice detectives were contacted by the DEA and U.S. Postal service reference packages of marijuana and cash being shipped through the mail.  Utilizing investigative techniques detectives were able to set up a buy/take down on the suspects.  The Investigation led to an apartment in the 5800 Block of Bywood Drive.

During the search, detectives recovered:

•    $32,901.00 in cash

•    3 firearms – 1 shotgun, and 2 handguns

•    Marijuana – 5,488 grams (12 pounds)

•    Heroin – 36 grams

•    Marijuana in the edible form of butter and chocolate shipped from California

•    Money ledgers showing multiple deposits, one was $270,000.00

50-year-old Dwayne Tubbs, 33-year-old Jeremy Martin, and 32-year-old Kelsey Henderson were all arrested for Dealing Narcotics and Possession of Narcotics.  All three were arrested and transported to the Arrestee Processing Center and face preliminary charges.  The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office will review the case and make a final charging decision. This mission was only possible because of networking, and the willingness of Federal, State, and Local partners.
