According to Indiana State Police, two people were arrested in Gibson County on Tuesday following a search of a home where around 98 grams of synthetic drugs were found.
ISP says a tip alleging that drugs were being sold from a residence on North Bittner Street in Owensville, Indiana, led to the investigation.
When Troopers arrived at the residence, they identified the tenants as 23-year-old Ryan Bennett and 27-year-old Kristina Randall, both of Owensville.
ISP says that during a search of the home, Troopers found a large plastic bag containing approximately 98 grams of plant-like material that later tested positive for synthetic drugs.
According to ISP, Troopers also located a plastic container that contained over 20 grams of an unknown powder-like substance, drug paraphernalia, and a box of plastic baggies
