State police said they found 14 pounds of synthetic marijuana and a stolen handgun as they served a series of warrants in southern Indiana Wednesday.

The Indiana State Police All Crimes Policing Squad and Indiana State Parole agents on Wednesday served warrants on several Evansville residents with parole violations. While tracking down one of the suspects, troopers and state parole agents found a stolen Ruger 9mm handgun inside a north side Evansville home, state police said.

Troopers then received tips about a large amount of synthetic marijuana inside a home on Evansville’s south side. Troopers and state parole agents went to the home and found 14 pounds of suspected synthetic marijuana, police said.

No other details have been released.

State police said the investigation was ongoing and once it was complete, a report would be forwarded to the Vanderburgh County Prosecutor’s Office for possible criminal charges.
