ICSO narcotics investigators received information that individuals were actively distributing controlled substances at Gay Street residence, Campbell said.

When the search warrant was executed on April 28, six subjects were located inside the home. A search of the residence yielded 20.2 grams of Ecstasy, 14.9 grams of crack cocaine, 1.3 grams of methamphetamine, and 104 grams of marijuana, along with four rifles, one handgun, a bulletproof vest, and U.S. currency, Campbell said.

  1. Why would this “Luckey” girl even be issued a bond? It’s pretty clear she has no intention (3 outstanding warrants for failure to appear) to show up for court?

      This is the reason our justice system is a shambles. I used to have a degree in Criminal Justice, but I renounced and returned it for reasons such as this. I wanted nothing to do with a lost cause. I hope this young lady makes bond and sets up operations at a new address.
