Four people are behind bars in Sioux Falls after a parole search lead to more than seven bags of meth near Whittier Middle School.  

At about 5 p.m. Monday, the Sioux Falls Area Drug Task Force conducted a parole search at 216 North Nesmith Avenue, which is the home of Derek Evans, 25. Officer Sam Clemens said the officers conducted the search when they saw Evans return home.

Clemens said the officers found seven bags of meth on Evans. One bag had 21 grams, and six other bags had almost four grams. Officer Sam Clemens said it made it seem to police the almost identical bags were created with the intent to sell.

Police said an unconfirmed amount of drugs was found in the home where three others were also arrested.

Toma Schumacher, 35, who lives in the home with Evans, was arrested. Nita Goldman, 54 was arrested when police found a small amount of meth in her purse, and Robert Almont, 42, was arrested after police found he had two pipes with meth residue.

Officer Sam Clemens said the bust happened near Heritage Park and Whittier Middle School. Clemens said no meth lab was found and the source of the drugs is unknown at this time.

Three children were also taken from the home during the meth bust. Evans' 5-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son were taken into protective custody. Schumacher's 3-year-old daughter was also taken into protective custody.

Here is a list of the charges the suspects are facing:
