WALLA WALLA — A police call to break up a fight ended with a discovery of methamphetamine and the arrest of four people.
Police were called to 137 Sheridan Road at 8:30 a.m. Friday for a fight. They found Larry R. Damm, 22, in the front yard.
While police were arresting Damm for investigation of warrants from College Place and Pasco, they discovered evidence that led to a search warrant being issued for the house.

Three children, ages 8, 5, and 3, were taken into custody due to the living conditions at the residence.
The three other people arrested were Michael Lynn Buffalohorn, 36, for investigation of a felony warrant; James D. Dunleavy, 27, for investigation of unlawful possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia; and Larry G. Damm Sr., 46, for investigation of unlawful possession of methamphetamine.
