Members of the ATF work with Evansville Police to stop a suspected drug dealing operation near downtown.

Officers arrested Robert Branson, 28, for allegedly dealing meth in the 1400 block of Venice Street.

Police say they found seven grams of meth as well as several weapons in his home.

Because he is a convicted felon, Branson isn’t supposed to have any guns.

His girlfriend, Ashley Merrick, 25, was also there at the time of his arrest.

Officers say they found a syringe in her purse and five Klonopin hidden in a vial around her neck.
