Kokomo police arrested three people, two from Frankfort and one from Mulberry, after finding drugs, money, and a loaded gun in their vehicle.

Yesterday, Kokomo Police Department officers were on routine patrol in the area of Markland Avenue and Armstrong Street when they observed a silver four-door Buick traveling southbound on Armstrong Street from Markland Avenue at a high rate of speed. Officers eventually caught up to the vehicle that then was parked in a driveway of a residence located in the area of Boulevard Road and Armstrong Street.

Officers Ty Solomon and Officer Alex Toth made contact with the occupants of the vehicle. During their contact with the vehicle and occupants, they smelled a strong odor of marijuana emitting from the vehicle. Officers conducted an investigation where they found and seized a “large amount” of methamphetamine, marijuana, cocaine, heroin, a loaded 9 mm handgun, and US currency. All three occupants were taken into custody.
