WARSAW – Police have busted a suspected drug house in Warsaw.
On Thursday, the Warsaw Police Department’s Drug Unit went to a mobile home in the 900 block of Anchorage Road.
Detectives got information that illegal drugs were being distributed from the home.
Warsaw narcotics team members and the K-9 unit made several traffic stops there, linking two men with the distribution and use of acid, or LSD, and marijuana.
Police say there were children living in the suspected drug house.
Nathan Ghrist, 32, who lived in the home, and Emmanuel Long, 22, of Warsaw were arrested and taken to the Kosciusko County Jail on several charges.
Ghrist faces 6 felony charges – dealing in marijuana, dealing in a Schedule I narcotic, maintaining a common nuisance, possession of marijuana over 30 grams, possession of a controlled substance and neglect of a child.
Long is charged with marijuana possession and faces much less time behind bars, since that is just a misdemeanor.
Police have filed four more arrest warrants with the Kosciusko County prosecutor’s office with the potential of even more arrests to follow.
The Department of Child Services helped Warsaw police in removing the children from the Anchorage Road home and placing them with relatives.
Warsaw police say they continue to diligently work to reduce the influence of illegal drugs in their community. Any drug tips can be called into the Warsaw Police Department at (574) 372-9540.
