Officers served a warrant at 1518 Richardson Street shortly before 11 a.m., according to a release from the Fort Wayne Police Department.

Three adults and one juvenile were found inside the residence at the time of the raid.

Detectives discovered a synthetic drug known as Spice, marijuana, drug paraphernalia consistent with meth use and two active one-pot labs, police said.
