Prosecutors in Noble County have filed formal charges against four people arrested during a large drug bust near Ligonier last week.

47-year-old Mark Morr will face charges of dealing methamphetamine at the level 2 felony level, dealing marijuana, theft, maintaining a common nuisance, and possession of a sawed-off shotgun during a drug crime.

47-year-old Sherry Morr will be charged with level 3 possession of meth, dealing marijuana, theft and maintaining a common nuisance.

19-year-old Justin Morr faces counts of level 3 possession of meth, dealing marijuana, and theft.

21-year-old Vanessa Salas will get charges of level 3 possession of meth, dealing marijuana, and theft.

Prosecutor Eric Blackman has filed the case against Mark Morr in Noble Superior Court 1, with the others going through Noble Circuit Court. Additionally, an allegation of being in possession of a sawed-off shotgun during a drug crime is being sought in Mark Morr’s case.

Blackman said police found at least 18 pounds of crystal meth and more than 100 pounds of marijuana with a street value of over one million dollars. Law enforcement officials are calling, “one of the largest methamphetamine seizures in state history.”

More than 60 firearms and over $74-thousand dollars in cash were seized at the home on State Road 5 just south of the LaGrange County line.

“The magnitude of this seizure really cannot be overstated,” said Prosecutor Blackman.

The four charged will be in Court on Thursday at 1:00 p.m. for their Initial Hearings, at which time the Court will also set bail.

The case remains under investigation by law enforcement officers.
