UPDATE: Seven charged with drug possession after police find alleged meth in house

At 3 p.m. the Kearney Police Department received a report of unwanted people inside a rental house in the 200 block of West 28th Street. Police served a search warrant on the house and found seven people, and 17.9 grams of suspected meth, inside.
