Law enforcement officers started searching the home and bullets from two different types of weapons were found, the sheriff’s office says. A small amount of meth, honey oil and a suspected meth lab was also discovered.
A suspicious device that was also discovered in the home prompted an Explosive Ordnance Disposal team to respond. The device was found to be not an explosive, though.
