Police say an anonymous tip led them to a house in south Broad Ripple and more than 60 pounds of marijuana and marijuana edibles.

Officers conducted a "knock-and-talk" investigation at a home in the 5500 block of Carvel Avenue Tuesday night after receiving the anonymous tip.

According to a release, officers were met at the door by a male subject and a "very strong odor" of marijuana. A second subject was also found inside the house.

After the men denied officers permission to search the home, IMPD requested and received a search warrant for the property.

Inside, they reportedly found evidence of a drug dealing operation, including the following:

  • 36 pounds of marijuana
  • 22 pounds (11 jars) of marijuana butter
  • 270 grams of marijuana gummy bears
  • 47 grams of psychedelic mushrooms
  • 39 individual containers of marijuana gummies
  • 20 schedule II amphetamine pills
  • 3 guns
  • $9,652 in U.S. currency

As a result of the investigation, IMPD arrested 25-year-old Bradley Betts on preliminary charges of possession and dealing in marijuana.
