A Michigan couple was arrested last week after police found meth, fake money and a loaded handgun inside their home.

Brian Conrad, 28, of Grand Rapids, and Nicole Hastings, 30, of Traverse City, were arrested Tuesday after a search warrant executed at the home in the Traverse City area resulted in the discovery of eight ounces of crystal methamphetamine (worth more than $20,000), a loaded unregistered handgun and $1,800 worth of fake money, WPBN reports.

Information was gathered through a joint investigation between the Traverse Narcotics Team and the Grand Traverse Sheriff's Department, which lead to the search warrant and arrests.

Conrad and Hastings were both charged with maintaining a drug house, delivery and manufacturing of meth and felony firearm.
