Goshen police conducted a search of a home in the 300 block of North Chicago Avenue Friday night after receiving several complaints about drug-related activity at the residence.

According to police, officers went to the home to speak with the occupants about the complaints. Officers were reportedly denied consent to search the home, so they obtained a search warrant.

During the search, police reportedly found several items associated with the sale of illegal narcotics and marijuana. Information is being forwarded to the Elkhart County Prosecutor’s Office for review.
