Police Find Spice During Business And Home Raid

Last updated on Friday, December 21, 2012

(FORT WAYNE) - Police raided a Fort Wayne business where they found chemicals that are similar to those that are used to make Spice.

Andy Russell of WANE TV reports that multiple police agencies were on scene at 4914 Speedway Drive. Police say they were serving a warrant at a business called B&B Distributors when they found the chemicals. One person was arrested for Misdemeanor Resisting Law Enforcement while the search warrant was being executed.

NewsChannel 15 had a crew on scene and saw employees being brought out in handcuffs and put into police cars. It's not known if the person who was arrested was an employee.

The SWAT team also raided a home at 2519 Tillman Rd. Thursday afternoon. Police said that home is in some way connected to the possible spice manufacturer on Speedway Dr.

Police confirmed that they responded to a home invasion robbery at the Tillman Rd. home earlier in the month. Police were looking for five suspects in connection to that robbery.

The Fort Wayne Police Department is being assisted by the Indiana State Police, DEA, FBI, IRS, State Excise Police and the Allen County Prosecuting Attorney's Office.
