Drug raid ends in 2 arrests, dead dog, condemned home

– A drug raid at a home on the city’s near west side ended with two arrests, a condemned house and one dead pit bull Wednesday.

Fort Wayne vice and narcotics detectives along with the department’s Emergency Services Team searched a home at 1404 Taylor St. just before 11 a.m.

Three pit bulls were in the home, two of which were given to the city’s Animal Care & Control, according to police.

A third was too aggressive and had to be killed by police.

Two people in the home, Sarah June Edwards, 39, and Justin Ryan Edwards, 18, were arrested.

Sarah June Edwards was charged with a felony count of maintaining a common nuisance and misdemeanor counts of possession of a synthetic drug and violation of home detention.

She was booked into Allen County Lockup without bond.

Justin Ryan Edwards was charged with one felony count of maintaining a common nuisance. He was being held in lieu of $500 bail.

The home’s conditions were deemed “substandard” by Neighborhood Code Enforcement, which found dog feces throughout the home.

Two 13-year-olds who lived at the home but were at school at the time of the raid were placed into the care of the Indiana Department of Child Services.
