EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – Authorities have arrested the final person in connection with a large drug operation.

Earlier this week, Tiyo Lewis, of Evansville, was located in Montgomery County, Ohio.

On April 26, 2019, the Posey County Drug Task Force and several other agencies executed arrest warrants in a drug raid stemming from an undercover drug investigation called “Operation Guillotine”.

The 40-year-old wasn’t located during the drug raid. But an arrest warrant was issued for him.

With Lewis in custody, a total of 42 arrests were made in the largest drug raid in Posey County history.

Lewis is charged with dealing meth for selling more than 10 grams of meth to an undercover informant in March 2019.

Lewis is being held on a $250,000 bond in the Posey County Jail.

If convicted, he faces 10 to 30 years in prison.
