BEDFORD – Three people were arrested Monday after a Bedford Police officer attempted to serve an active warrant for failure to appear on 36-year-old Jeremy Evans at a home in the 1900 block of J Street.
Two Bedford Police officers went to the front of the home and two others went to the rear of the home. The officers knocked on the front door, but no one would come to the door. The officers at the rear of the house knocked on that door and officers entered the home and found Evans where he was detained.
Officers also located 25-year-old Jeremiah Goen and 32-year-old Tiffany Holt in the home.
Goen had a knife in a sheath on his hip. In his pocket officers located a plastic baggie that contained meth. He was then detained. Goen told the officer he had found the baggie when he was picking up trash inside the home.
Officers then conducted a protective sweep of the house to make sure no one else was in the home. Police found no one else inside the home, but they did find a smoking device on a table next to the couch in plain view.
Evans admitted there was a bag of “dope” inside the home on the counter along with a smoking pipe. Evans told the officer the “dope” was methamphetamine, and that the pipe was a meth pipe. Evans waived his rights and granted officers consent to search his residence.
Holt denied knowing there were drugs inside the home. She told police she was just there visiting Jeremy Evans.
During a search of the house, they found the meth and a glass smoking pipe where Evans said it was located. They also found four plastic bags containing crystal meth inside the seat cushion of the couch. In a backpack, officers found a digital scale and glass smoking devices.
Inside a container, there were three plastic bags containing meth residue that was also found.
In total officers found five bags containing a total of 5.90 grams of meth.
All three were arrested on charges of possession of meth and possession of drug paraphernalia. Evans was also arrested for the failure to appear warrant.
