An investigation led to the search of a residence northwest of Columbus and the arrest of a man on a charge of selling crystal methamphetamine while on house arrest, police said.

Michael D. Sample Sr., 43 of 4970 N. Indianapolis Road in Columbus, was arrested Tuesday on charges of possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver, a Class A felony, and possession of marijuana and maintaining a common nuisance, both Class D felonies. More arrests are possible, police said.

Police got a search warrant after narcotics detectives obtained information that someone was selling the drug out of Sample’s home, east of the Lowell Addition near the intersection of Victory Lane, said Columbus Police Department spokesman Lt. Matt Myers. He said that investigators believe the meth was manufactured outside the U.S.

Besides multiple grams of crystal meth, officers also found other street narcotics, an air pistol, marijuana, drug paraphernalia and a sizable amount of cash, Myers said.

Court records show Sample’s probation was revoked in September for probation violations and he was placed on house arrest.

Sample, who was booked into the Bartholomew County Jail shortly before midnight Tuesday, is jailed without bond.
