A busy Thursday night for NET 43 officials led them to four arrests.

Officials say that tips from the community led them to several arrests in Syracuse. The tips led to controlled purchases of methamphetamine from a residence at 4484 East 1300 North. Additional traffic stops were performed on vehicles that were connected to the residence, giving officers probable cause of consistent dealing at that address.

The Kosciusko County SWAT team executed a search warrant on the home and subsequently arrested 70-year old John Christian, 44-year old Phillip Christian, 40-year old Leslie Patrick and 22-year old Austin Leasure, all charged with possession of meth.

An investigation is on-going in the case.
