Search warrant yields two drug arrests

Officers from four agencies in two counties served a search warrant on Park Lane in Nashville Jan. 14 which resulted in the arrest of two men on drug possession charges.

Charges were filed April 13.

Lawrence Michael Culp, 38, and Noah Joshua Ford, 35, were sharing the home in the 500 block of Park Lane, where police reported finding plastic baggies, glass pipes, a digital scale, two guns and other paraphernalia.

Items at the scene were laboratory-tested for drugs; those results came back positive for methamphetamine, cocaine and marijuana, the police report said.

Culp told police that on occasion, Ford would leave a young child at the home for him to watch, the report said. The child was with a neighbor when police arrived and was released to a grandfather.

Culp had an outstanding warrant for drunken driving from Bartholomew County; he was taken into custody, the report said.

Ford was booked into the Brown County jail April 16 and was released about an hour later after posting bond.

Both were formally charged April 13 with possession of methamphetamine, a Level 6 felony; and possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia, both misdemeanors.
