Two women were arrested after police say they found methamphetamine and a stolen handgun in their house during a burglary investigation.
Wichita police Officer Charley Davidson said the victim of the burglary found a post on Facebook advertising his tools for sale. Investigators set up a time to meet with the seller and eventually got a search warrant for a home in the 100 block of South Greenwich.
They found just over an ounce of meth, a stolen handgun, multiple stolen tools and $1,000 in cash, Davidson said.
Two woman – ages 38 and 53 – were arrested on suspicion of possession of meth, possession of drug paraphernalia and multiple warrants.
