It all happened on the 5600 block of South 1st Street when officers arrived at the door of Matthew Thomas Struble, 20.
Struble answered and continuously kept looking behind the doors and placing his hands in his pockets. Another suspect, Jeffery Daughtery was acting the same way. There were shot gun shells in plain site of the officers.
When they feared for their safety, the officers detained both suspects. Struble said he had a shotgun in the bathtub. Officers say both seemed to be under the influence of narcotics.
After searching the room, police found two baggies with methamphetamine. Stuble was arrested for an outstanding warrant for a Class B terroristic threat, 3rd degree felony possession of a controlled substance and 3rd degree felony unlawful possession of a firearm.
Struble is held on bonds worth $13,000.
