(HUNTINGBURG) - A Monday afternoon warrant service in Huntingburg led officers to additional arrests and to seize marijuana and methamphetamine.

At 1:53 p.m. Monday, Trooper Brock Werne and officers with the Huntingburg Police Department attempted to serve an arrest warrant at 213 North Van Buren Street in Huntingburg. Officers were looking for 35-year-old Chad Ramsey, of Huntingburg, who was wanted on a warrant through Dubois County for failing to appear for a court appearance.

As officers arrived at the front door, Werne went to the back of the residence, and heard voices inside a shed in the back yard. Werne knocked on the door, asking for Ramsey; Ramsey exited a second door and was arrested.

As officers were arresting Ramsey, they could smell a strong odor of burnt marijuana coming from the inside of the shed. Officers obtained consent to search the shed from the second man present, 30-year-old Gregory Reisz, of Huntingburg.

During their search, officers found marijuana, smoking devices, digital scales, and a container containing a white powder that field tested positive for meth. Officers also found a Chinese throwing star hanging on the wall, which is illegal to possess in Indiana.

Ramsey and Reisz were transported to and lodged in the Dubois County Security Center without incident on the following charges, possession of meth, maintaining a common nuisance, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a Chinese throwing star.
