Kalamazoo, MI: On August 3rd, investigators from the Kalamazoo Valley Enforcement Team and officers from the Community Policing Unit conducted an operation in Interfaith Homes in reference to recent citizen complaints of drug activity and gun violence.
During this operation, officers arrested a 27 year old Kalamazoo man who was a wanted parole absconder. Officers also obtained and executed a search warrant at an apartment inside the complex. Upon searching the residence, officers located suspected heroin and evidence of drug dealing. A 44 year old Kalamazoo man was not arrested but charges of Possession With Intent to Distribute Heroin and Maintaining a Drug House will be forwarded to the Kalamazoo County Prosecutor’s Office for review and prosecution.
During this operation, KVET investigators utilized a video surveillance system installed inside the complex by the owners of Interfaith Homes. KVET investigators will continue to aggressively investigate drug and weapons related crimes at Interfaith Homes.
