(SHOALS) - Indiana State Police and parole officers arrested three Shoals residents on drug and weapon charges Tuesday morning.

Around 10:50 a.m. Trooper Jarrod Lents assisted two parole officers in conducting a parole search at the home of 47-year-old Darren Bruce Stone in Shoals.

When officers knocked on the door they were greeted by 32-year-old Julie Lents. She told police that she and 20-year-old Katie Stone-Payne were the only two people at the home.

Trooper Lents, in order to ensure the safety of the officers, performed a protective sweep of the home. During that search he found Stone hiding behind a shower curtain in the shower.

While searching the home, police found a loaded .22 caliber handgun, marijuana roaches and drug paraphernalia in plain view in the living room.

As a convicted serious violent felon, Stone is prohibited from possessing a firearm.

Police obtained a search warrant for the home and outbuildings on the property.
