On September 8, 2022, at approximately 2:30 pm, police responded to a request to check on the wellbeing of a family with young children.  While at the residence, police observed a firearm.  Members of the Major Crime Section then secured the home and obtained a search warrant, which resulted on officers locating and seizing the following:

Sawed off shotgun with ammunition
Sawed of .22 with ammunition
Three replica pellet guns
Stolen Giant Mountain bike
Stolen Trek Mountain bike
Approximately ½ oz. Cocaine individually packaged for sale

As well as other property which has yet to be determined if it is stolen property as well.

The two bikes were able to be returned to their rightful owners as they had documented the serial numbers when they reported them stolen.
