Fort Wayne Man Arrested in Federal Raid

Federal agents arrested a Fort Wayne man as part of a house raid early Tuesday afternoon. And this isn't the first time police have been at this address in the past year.
Federal agents arrested a Fort Wayne man as part of a house raid early Tuesday afternoon.

And this isn't the first time police have been at this address in the past year.

Police have actually been at this house three times in the past two years.

WFFT’s Andrew Logsdon was there in December at the last raid, and neighbors say this one was very similar.

Drug enforcement agents say they all could be connected.

We also spoke with a neighbor who says they've had enough.

"And this is the third time the police has been there. And I really wish they could do something about it, because I have to live here,” says one neighbor who wished to be unnamed.

Drug Enforcement agents raided this home on the 2500 block of East Tillman Road and arrested Barry Bays.

This isn't the first time law enforcement has been at this house.

This past December, Fort Wayne Police confiscated cars, cash and chemicals here and at the B&B Distributions warehouse on Speedway Drive in a Spice manufacturing investigation.

"Without knowing the case in detail, I believe the previous law enforcement action is also linked to this action to some extent,” says Assistant Special Agent in Charge of DEA Indiana Dennis Wischern.

Neighbors say this is the third police action at this home.

"The first time was supposed to be somebody robbed, then the second time was supposed to be something about spice, or something. And this time is supposed to be something about drugs. When does it stop?" The neighbor says.

Neighbors who spoke to be off camera say they saw federal agents take away sports cars, motorcycles, computers and boxes full of paper bags.

Wischern says the details of the arrest, and charges, could be released Wednesday.

Bays is expected in federal court Wednesday.

Neighbors say they want him off their street.

"I don't know, I guess we have to get out here with our neighborhood association club to see if they can do something about it, see if we can get them out of here,” the neighbor says.

Bays was actually due in court Tuesday facing two felony charges from this past April, just hours before the raid happened.

We will continue to follow this story as it develops.
