Two additional arrests have been made related to drug-soaked candies discovered last week.

Austin Meyn, 21, was initially arrested following a probation search that revealed Meyn was allegedly soaking gummy candies in Clonazolam and distributing them to people.

Three containers of soaked gummy candies were also found in the residence. Multiple other pills were found in addition to shipping labels controlled substances came in.

Meyn allegedly use online accounts to purchase Clonazolam and received it through a package carrier.

On Friday, police intercepted a package containing 47 grams of edible THC extract and 27 grams of THC shatter addressed to 521 W. Mary St.

At around 2 p.m., officers saw Mariah Larimore, 19, take possession of the package and enter the residence.

According to court documents, a search warrant was served and authorities found the package was opened and in the possession of 59-year-old Warren Rhoden.

As officers approached him, he allegedly started throwing packaging material into the trash and shoving narcotics into a desk drawer. Larimore allegedly told police she knew what was in the package.

Larimore and Rhoden were each arrested and are due back in court on Sept. 18.
