Eyewitness News has learned that a morning raid at a home in Evansville is connected to a meth case.

At a news conference a short time ago, U.S. Attorney, Joe Hogsett announced the indictment of six Evansville residents.

Joshua Chaffin, William Hollis, Travis Sutton, Gary Winstead, Jr., Michael Hartweck and Jennifer Chumley are accused of conspiring to distribute meth.

Eyewitness News' Jordan Vandenberge reports the exact quantity of meth isn't known, but measures in pounds.  According to Hogsett, the meth in this case is believed to have been brought in from out of the area, and was likely manufactured through more complicated methods than the "one pot" method we often hear about.

Earlier on Thursday, DEA agents served a federal search warrant in the 1900 block of Conlin Avenue in Evansville.  Hogsett says the raid is connected to this case.

We are continuing to follow developments and will bring you the very latest later on Eyewitness News.
