SILVER LAKE, Ind. (WFFT) — An undercover meth purchase by police leads to an arrest of a man in Silver Lake Tuesday afternoon.

Officers from the Narcotics Enforcement Team in Kosciusko County made a controlled purchase of one ounce of methamphetamine in Silver Lake, on Tuesday.

Police said after the meth was purchased, a traffic stop was conducted on the prime suspect, 26-year-old Cory Krider of Silver Lake, Indiana.

Officers said during the traffic stop they discovered an additional ounce of meth.

An interview with Krider led police to retrieving more meth; with a street value of about $42,000, according to officers.

His bond is set to $25,000.
