Two people were arrested Tuesday after police found drugs, including methamphetamine, and a weapon in a La Porte home.

Steven Hall,19, and Elizabeth Kopycinski were charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.  A deadly weapon enhancement charge was also added.

The La Porte Police Department's Street Crimes Unit, along with the assistance of several other LPPD officers from neighboring divisions, executed a narcotic search warrant at a home in the 1600 block of Brook Meadow.

Inside the home, investigators located over four ounces of crystal meth, along with assorted pills, baggies for packaging, a digital scale, and a 9mm handgun – all items consistent with drug trafficking activities.

Hall and Kopycinski were both taken into custody.
