DRUGS: At 9:46 a.m. officers went to the 100 block of Virginia Avenue to attempt to make contact with a wanted person. Once officers made contact, they conducted a search of his clothing and found two bags containing illegal narcotics. Spencer Kouts advised he had what he believed to be cocaine or methamphetamine in his front right pocket. A small clear bag of a white crystal substance was found. He stated he was holding them for a friend. Another small clear bag containing a white powder substance rolled into a dollar bill was also found in his wallet. Kouts advised he thought it was a mixture of cocaine and methamphetamine. The field test revealed it was methamphetamine, and it weighed 4.3 grams on a digital scale. He was incarcerated in jail without bond for possession of controlled substances with a detainer for Mercer County.

SEARCH WARRANT: Officers conducted a search warrant in the 100 block of Virginia Avenue. Officers spoke to Spencer Kouts at the Police Department and learned he had been arrested at his residence, and had been in possession of what appeared to be methamphetamine and another unknown substance at the time of arrest. During the conversation, officers learned there were two eight-year-old children living at the listed address with their mother, and he advised there was drug paraphernalia inside the residence along with possibly methamphetamine. Due to him being arrested with suspected narcotics on his person, his admission to there being drug paraphernalia, and possibly narcotics still at the residence, and children residing at the residence, officers obtained a search warrant for the residence in reference to child endangering and possession. Upon entry, officers found the living conditions to be poor with dishes, food, and other trash laying out. There were two dogs in the residence and a strong odor of urine emitting throughout. The bedrooms appeared to have rodent feces in the drawers. Darke County Children’s Services was contacted about the matter, and they showed up to talk to the mother. During the search, drug paraphernalia and suspected methamphetamine was located in the garage. It was taken and placed in evidence.
