ISP Troopers had obtained information that 36-year-old Danny Collins, of Bedford, was involved in dealing meth. In addition, it was also known that Collins was wanted on two active arrest warrants; one for failure to appear and the original charge of dealing meth.

DES Detectives, along with Sgt. Greg Day, Trp. Caleb Garvin, Trp. Matt Hatchett and Officer Shaun Cabral of the Lawrence County Highway Interdiction Team, discovered that Collins was at a residence in the 1300 block of U Street in Bedford. Upon arrival at the residence, the homeowner allowed officers to enter. 

They located Collins and arrested him without incident.

While taking Collins into custody, troopers discovered he was in possession of meth, drug paraphernalia, and several hundred dollars. Along with evidence found at the time of arrest, troopers developed probable cause to show that Collins was dealing methamphetamine.
