MONROE COUNTY, Ind. -- Indiana State Police say an investigation in Monroe County led to what is believed to be the largest single methamphetamine seizure in that county's history.

Troopers began their investigation following a traffic stop Tuesday along State Road 37 near Arlington Road. 

Information obtained during that stop led state troopers to identify a possible meth dealer in Bloomington.

On Wednesday, troopers found meth, marijuana, pills, and drug paraphernalia inside a Monroe County home. They also recovered three handguns.

Troopers say all the guns were loaded and two had the serial numbers removed. 

Information uncovered during that search led investigators to two identify suspected meth dealers.

During a traffic stop of the suspected dealers, troopers say they located more than two ounces of meth, along with drug paraphernalia and several different types of pills.

While serving a search warrant on Thursday on a home on Valley View Lane in Bloomington, Troopers recovered 2.75 pounds of meth worth an estimated $136,000. They also seized cash, scales and drug packaging materials.

Tiffany Flynn was arrested on preliminary charges of dealing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine, three counts of possession of a schedule IV controlled substance, possession of a schedule II and possession of a schedule III controlled substance, maintaining a common nuisance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Brandon Norris was arrested on preliminary charges of dealing methamphetamine, possession of methamphetamine over 28 grams, and maintaining a common nuisance.

Flynn and Norris are in the Monroe County Jail.

Troopers say their investigation is ongoing and they expect to arrest other suspects.
