Police seize firearms, fentanyl pills, and cash during Indy raid

Detectives seize firearms and drugs

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Detectives from the Indiana Crime Guns Task Force seized multiple firearms and machine gun conversion devices last week in a house raid, with one suspect taken into custody.

Anthony Bartres-Abarca, 28, was arrested on Sept. 7 by the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department after officers obtained a search warrant for his home in the 1200 block of Worcester Avenue and his car. That’s a residential area near Southeastern Avenue and Emerson Avenue, just east of Irvington.

Upon searching the house detectives seized the following items:

  • 25 handguns
  • five rifles
  • five machine gun conversion devices
  • $18,928 in US currency
  • 6,000 grams of fentanyl pills
  • 300 grams of marijuana

An IMPD SWAT team detained Bartres-Abarca later that day a short distance from his residence. Detectives found on his person a firearm and fentanyl pills.

Bartres-Abarca was arrested on preliminary charges of dealing with a narcotic drug and possession of a machine gun. The Marion County Prosecutor’s Office will make the final charging decision.

“A charge is merely an accusation. Batres-Abarca should be considered innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law,” according to IMPD.
