A search warrant served by the Lincoln-Lancaster County Narcotics Task Force led investigators to 1.7 pounds of methamphetamine near 59th and and Holdrege streets on Friday night.

Officer Erin Spilker said investigators served the warrant around 11 p.m. at the residence of Aaron Kuntz, where they found the meth with a street value of around $7,000. Police also found numerous items used for the sale of drugs, Spilker said, and more than $900 in cash.

Also in the home was a 37-year-old woman, whom investigators determined to be a visitor of the home, Spilker said. She was arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance. 

Both Kuntz and the woman were taken to the Lancaster County Jail.
