A 45-year-old man was arrested after a large amount of different illegal drugs were found in his home when two people were hospitalized.

According to the Keller Police Department, a drug overdose was reported at a house in the 1300 block of Briar Ridge Drive on March 3. One man at the home was transported to a Grapevine hospital and was admitted to the intensive care unit. A woman was also taken to the ICU that day by personal vehicle.

Two days later, police searched the house, owned by Steven King, and seized methamphetamines, LSD, marijuana, prescription medications and more than 20 marijuana plants, as well as additional substances that have been sent to the lab for identification, according to police.

King was arrested on four felony charges of manufacture or delivery of a controlled substance, and could face additional charges, pending lab results, the Police Department news release says. King has been released from the Keller Regional Jail on $10,000 bond.
