INDIANAPOLIS — Police seized Fentanyl, heroin and a large amount of cash following a drug investigation on the south side of Indianapolis on Wednesday.

According to a report from the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, on Wednesday around 7 p.m. Southeast District Narcotics detectives were conducting surveillance on a house in the 2100 block of Redfern Drive where narcotics activity had been observed.

Detectives alleged a 44-year-old man was dealing narcotics from the house and obtained a search warrant for the house. When the man returned home, a traffic stop was initiated and the search warrant was served.

Police said during the search officers found four ounces of Fentanyl, heroin, more than $5,000 in cash and narcotics paraphernalia. The man and a 35-year-old woman were arrested on suspicion of dealing and possession of narcotics, possession of marijuana and maintaining a common nuisance.

RTV6 is not identifying the two suspects because formal charges have not been filed.
