INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Indianapolis police seized a considerable amount of drugs and eight stolen guns after executing a search warrant on the city’s northwest side.

Police executed the search warrant last Thursday in the 3500 block of Catalpa Avenue.

The primary target of the search warrant was not home at the time, but detectives were able to find significant evidence of drug trafficking from the home.

Police seized the following items after a search of 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; two loaded AR-15 .223 caliber rifles; 3 SKS 7.62 X 39 caliber rifles; scales and paraphernalia for mixing and cooking drugs; one drug press.

During the course of this investigation, the Springfield 9mm handgun was determined to be stolen from Greensburg. The Glock 9mm handgun was determined to be stolen from Madison County. One of the AR-15 rifles was determined to be stolen from Noble County. Lastly, one of the SKS rifles was found to have the serial number obliterated from the weapon.

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