INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.– A search warrant led to the seizure of several weapons and a considerable amount of drugs on the northwest side of town.

On Thursday, an IMPD SWAT Team served the warrant in the 3500 block of Catalpa Avenue, near West 62nd Street and Cooper Road. Police did not find the suspect at the center of the warrant, but several items were seized from the home:

  • 1.5 ounces of marijuana
  • 1.38 ounces of heroin
  • Loaded Glock .40 caliber handgun
  • Loaded Glock 9mm caliber handgun
  • Loaded Springfield 9mm caliber handgun
  • 2 loaded AR-15 .223 caliber rifles
  • 3 SKS 7.62 X 39 caliber rifles
  • Scales and paraphernalia for mixing and cooking drugs
  • 1 drug press

Detectives found that the Springfield 9mm handgun was stolen from Greensburg, the Glock 9mm handgun was stolen from Madison County and one of the AR-15 rifles was stolen from Noble County. On one of the SKS rifles, the serial number was removed.

The investigation is ongoing. Police did not release information regarding the suspect, but said there would be an announcement of arrests “in the near future.”

“I applaud the efforts of our North District narcotics detectives,” said IMPD Chief Troy Riggs. “Removing these high-powered rifles and handguns could potentially save a life and prevent further violence on the streets of Indianapolis.”
