Seven people were arrested in Kosciusko County after a bust that uncovered more than 100 small bags of heroin and more than 3 grams of methamphetamine, police said.
While investigating a heroin purchase Wednesday, officers from the Warsaw Police Department and the Kosciusko County Sheriff's Department learned of a meth lab in the 3100 block of Stoneburner Road in Warsaw, the sheriff's department said.
Officers arrested husband and wife Shawn Morton, 50, and Dawn Morton, 47, of Warsaw on preliminary charges of dealing and manufacturing meth. Both were being held at the Kosciusko County Jail in lieu of $20,000 bail, police said.
Officers returned to the original heroin purchase and arrested Adam Shay, 21, of Elkhart on a preliminary charge of possession of a controlled substance. Shay was being held in lieu of $2,000 bail.
Shay's arrest then led officers to a Leesburg mobile home park where officers arrested three more people early Thursday.
A 19-year-old Chicago man was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of visiting a common nuisance.
William Sanford, 34, of Warsaw, and Rachel Truex, 30, of Warsaw were both arrested on a charge of dealing a narcotic drug.
Two juveniles were also discovered at the home and one was transported to a juvenile detention facility because of alleged involvement in heroin distribution, police said.
Sanford and Truex were each being held in lieu of $20,000 bail, according to police.
