Inside they found 2-by-4s fortifying the door and electric wires hooked into it. Police said Lewis was found hiding in the attic under the insulation.

He was arrested for suspicion of drug possession with intent to distribute and for his warrants. Police said they found meth and other drug paraphernalia in his possession.
