(PAOLI) - The Orange County Drug Enforcement Unit arrested several individuals after they executed a search warrant at a home at 141 Hudleson Street in Paoli last Tuesday and found meth.

The residence was occupied by Andrew Sneed, Devin Osborne, Jason Garlock and Melissa Strother and her 4-year-old child.

Police arrested 31-year-old Andrew Sneed, 19-year-old Devin Osborn, 38-year-old Shawna Bennett/Archer and 42- year-old Michael Brown Jr., all of Paoli.

Melissa Strother was kept at the home while the Indiana Department of Child Protective Services was notified and her child could be secured.

Strother was then transported to the Orange County Jail and a search of the residence was conducted.

Officers found a handgun, meth, marijuana, drug paraphernalia, hypodermic syringes and items commonly used to deal meth.

23-year-old Jason Garlock was not at the residence when the search warrant was executed.

Andrew Sneed is facing charges for dealing meth while in possession of a firearm, possession of meth, possession of marijuana and maintaining a common nuisance.

Sneed was released from prison in October 2014 for dealing meth and is currently on parole.

Melissa Strother, Osborne and Garlock are facing charges for possession of meth, possession of marijuana and maintaining a common nuisance.
