UPDATED: Tuesday March 19, 2013 6:00 PM

Police say a man was indicted after officers found a number of drugs in his Westerville residence.

Genoa Township police say the type of drugs and the amounts that were found are unusual in Westerville.

Authorities said where they found them is disturbing as well. They were located in a home within a thousand feet of both Alcott Elementary school and Westerville Central High School.

The bust was made for possession and trafficking methamphetamine and having a marijuana grow operation.

Robert Williamson was wanted on a failure to appear in court charge, when police showed up at his house.

Williamson answered the door, and when they took him into custody, police tell us that they found a loaded gun on him as well as the narcotics.

Williamson now faces first degree felony trafficking of meth within a thousand feet of a school.

Police said the street value of the meth found is about$10,000.

Williamson is also charged with growing marijuana within a thousand feet of a school and possession of LSD and prescription painkillers. All of the charges carry possible added time for having a loaded gun.

Police told CrimeTracker10 that the eye opener of the whole bust was that amount of crystal meth that is unusual for the area.

Williamson is set to be arraigned on all five charges on April 19.
