Kalamazoo, MI: On January 23rd, investigators from the Kalamazoo Valley Enforcement Team executed a search warrant in the 3300 block of W Main St in the Township of Kalamazoo. This warrant was in reference to an on-going investigation into the distribution of Heroin and Crack Cocaine from a suspect living in the area.
Prior to executing the search warrant, the suspect was arrested outside of the residence. A search of his person revealed a large amount of Crack Cocaine, Powder Cocaine and over 8 grams of high quality Heroin, equal to approximately 80 user doses of heroin.
Upon searching the residence, investigators located additional Powder Cocaine, evidence of the manufacturing of Crack Cocaine, a loaded handgun and over $23,000.00 in US currency believed to be the proceeds of drug trafficking. A 26 year old Kalamazoo Township man was arrested for Possession With Intent to Distribute Heroin, Possession With Intent to Distribute Crack Cocaine, Possession With Intent to Distribute Cocaine, Felony Firearms, Felon in Possession of a Firearm and Maintaining a Drug House. The suspect was lodged at the Kalamazoo County Jail. This case will be forwarded to the Kalamazoo County Prosecutor’s Office for review.
