Four people were arrested and police found more than 120 pounds of drugs during a bust in Noble County on Thursday, Dec. 29.

Mark Morr, 47, Sherry Morr, 47, Justin Morr, 19, and Vanessa Salas, 21, were all arrested and are in custody with no bond. Two teenagers were inside the home during the bust and were placed into the care of the Department of Child Services, according to the Noble County Sheriff’s Office. 

At about 8 a.m. Thursday, a search warrant was executed at a house in the 1100 block of North State Road 5 in Ligonier.

Crews found about 20 pounds of meth, more than 100 pounds of marijuana and paraphernalia. Police say the street value of the drugs is more than $1 million.

Between 50 and 50 loaded firearms were found in the house. Crews also found stolen dirt bikes, motorcycles, ATVS and about $80,000 in cash.

Noble County Sheriff Douglas A. Harp calls it the biggest drug bust in Noble County’s history and possibly the state’s history.
