During a jail search more heroin and meth were found in a hidden mesh pocket attached to Alvarado's underwear.

Alvarado was also found to be wanted out of Elkhart County on a misdemeanor warrant.

Alvarado is currently being held at the Kosciusko County Jail on a $250,000 bond for the drug charges, and no bond for the warrant.

Likens is being charged with a Class A felony, and is being held on a $100,000 bond.
