According to arrest affidavits, deputies searched residence in the 4600 block of Pioneer Road at approximately 5:11 p.m. They found several small bags containing white crystal powder, which tested positive for meth, in bedrooms belonging to Michael and David.

In Michael's room, deputies found a revolver that was reported stolen in Sioux City, Iowa.

Michael and Hoffman were detained as they approached the house as the search warrant was being served.

Other firearms were also found in David's bedroom.

As a deputy searched Hoffman's wallet for his identification, he found a small bag containing a crystal substance in a side pocket. A red plastic container with marijuana was also found in Hoffman's pocket.

This is the second time a search warrant has been executed at this residence this year.

On June 4, deputies searched the home and found several plastic and glass containers with white crystal and white powder inside. The powder tested positive for meth.

David Boles was arrested then. He pleaded guilty Sept. 18 in Washington County District Court and planned to to make application to District 6 Drug Court.

A status hearing in that case is set for Tuesday.
