The LCSO had obtained the search warrant from Livingston County Associate Circuit Court and the search warrant authorized the officers to search for Methamphetamine, Drug Paraphernalia, and other items.
The investigation resulted in the arrest of 2 residents and subsequent arrest warrant from Livingston County Associate Court on Mary Alice Koehl, 35, Ludlow and Ben Wesley Cooper, 41, Ludlow.
