INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Indianapolis Metropolitan police arrested three people during a bust at a barbershop that netted cash, marijuana and a pair of vehicles.

IMPD Northwest District Narcotics and Vice detectives served a search warrant Tuesday afternoon at “Word of Mouf” barbershop, 3851 N. Kevin Way, after their investigation led them to believe drugs were being sold out of the business.
