When officers entered the house to make sure it was safe, officers located in plain view drug paraphernalia and methamphetamine. The only weapons that were located were two BB guns and two bows.”

Evans was arrested on charges of possession of meth, possession of drug paraphernalia, intimidation, criminal mischief, and unlawful use of 911.
