Man arrested after meth, $70K found in Shelbyville home

SHELBYVILLE, Ind. (WISH) – A Shelbyville man was arrested last week after police say meth and more than $70,000 were found inside a home.

Officers spoke with a homeowner on Montgomery Street last Friday and asked if they could search the house in reference to a narcotics investigation. Inside the home, officers found two bags of crystal meth, each weighing 20 grams.

Officials returned to the home with a search warrant and located large sums of money, totaling $70,600.

A man in the home, Francisco Guerrero, told police the meth was his. The drugs and cash were seized and Guerrero was taken into custody.

Guerrero was preliminarily charged with possession of methamphetamine, dealing methamphetamine, and corrupt business influence.
