On Sept. 16, IMPD, working within the Indianapolis Crime Gun Intelligence Center (CGIC) initiated a narcotics/firearms investigation in response to information provided by citizens in the 3600 block of Foxtail Drive, Indianapolis. 

Detectives found 35-year-old Demarcus Nance inside the home. CGIC detectives detained Nance and obtained a search warrant.
