VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

A search warrant served at a Vancouver home turned up more than a half pound of methamphetamine.

The warrant was served on the 9800 block of N.E. 67th Street at 4 p.m. Wednesday.

Investigators said they had reason to believe meth was being sold from the home.

During a search of a locked bedroom, determined to belong to Troy Meyers, 45, a safe was discovered.

After getting the key from Meyers, court documents state police opened the safe and found a large quantity of meth, a small quantity of cocaine and crack cocaine, a few oxycontin prescription pills and packaging material.

Officers said money and a digital scale with a weighing cup were found next to the bed, where the safe was located.

Court documents state a false compartment was then found in a bathroom closet. It contained more methamphetamine, according to a probable cause affidavit.

According to that affidavit, Meyers admitted selling and "cutting" methamphetamine for profit, while the cocaine was for his personal use.

Meyers made his first appearance in court Thursday. He is facing various drug charges. His bail was set at $25,000 and a formal arraignment is scheduled for June 12.
