GIBSON CO., IN (WFIE) -

Wednesday afternoon, March 27, Indiana State Police and the US Marshal's Service were actively searching for George Smith, 31, and Ashley Holeman, 22, both from Princeton.

Authorities say felony warrants had been issued for both of them for manufacturing meth and several other drug offenses in Gibson County.

Around 2:15 p.m., officers received information Smith and Holeman were staying at a residence located at 721 South Hart Street in Princeton.

When officers arrived they were greeted at the door by the homeowner. Authorities say the officers called for Smith and Holeman to come to the door or they would send a K-9 unit inside the residence.

The officers say within seconds, Smith and Holeman walked out from a bedroom and were taken into custody without incident.

Officials say when officers searched Smith they found a black pouch that contained a small amount of marijuana and a corner baggie containing meth.

ISP says while inside the residence troopers detected an odor of marijuana. Troopers searched the residence and say they found drug paraphernalia and a small amount of marijuana under a couch cushion.
