2 arrested after drug bust in home near city park

Fort Wayne police arrested two people on cocaine charges Friday after raiding a home near McMillen Park.

Narcotics officers searched 2703 Oxford St. and found scales, cocaine paraphernalia and cocaine residue on the kitchen table. Police also seized a handgun, a shotgun and body armor.

No one was in the home when police arrived, but soon after the raid, officers found Rodney Armour Jr., 37, and Danielle Wehrle, 30, of Churubusco in a vehicle at South Anthony Boulevard and East Tillman Road. Armour had 2.1 grams of cocaine hidden in his buttocks, police said.

Armour was arrested on charges of dealing cocaine within 1,000 feet of a public park, possession of marijuana and two counts of dealing cocaine. He also had five warrants from civil court. He was held without bail.

Wehrle was booked on a felony charge of cocaine possession and misdemeanor counts of marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphernalia. She was expected to be released on her own recognizance Friday night.
