Two men were arrested and guns, marijuana and cash were seized in a Crescent Avenue raid on Fort Wayne's northeast side.

The Fort Wayne Police Gang and Violent Crimes Unit executed a “no knock” search warrant at 3:45 p.m. Monday at 2111 Crescent Ave., police and court records said Tuesday.

Investigators found more than six pounds of marijuana and some prepackaged marijuana along with about 9 ounces of marijuana edibles and more than $14,000 in cash.

Several guns were also found, including a Stag Arms Stag 15 assault rifle, two Smith & Wesson M&P Shield 9 mm handguns, an American Tactical Thunderbolt .45 caliber and a Kimbro Micro9 9 mm handgun.

Tyler Turnwald, 22, whose home is listed at 2111 Crescent Ave. in court documents, and Caleb Marshall Lloyd, 23, of Van Wert, Ohio, were arrested and charged with maintaining a common nuisance. Turnwald was given an additional misdemeanor charge for possession of marijuana.

Both were released on their own recognizance, according to an Allen County Jail spokesman.

During the raid, Lloyd was picked up as he drove a red Buick with Ohio license plates west on Forest Avenue. Lloyd told police he lived with Turnwald and knew that another roommate, who was not named in the court document, “was moving a couple of dime bags at the residence.”

He also told police he had seen others “smoking weed every blue moon in the residence,” court documents said.

Smoking pipes with burnt residue along with digital scales, clear plastic baggies and a green leafy substance were scattered on the tables inside.
