Operation Gucci began in June and focused on the residence at 915 Martin Luther King Drive. As a result, officers seized over 13 ounces of marijuana, 21 grams of heroin, 24 grams of cocaine, nearly 3 ounces of molly, and over $6,000.

In November, the Crime Suppression Unit continued its investigation and served a search warrant at 801 Pine Street. Within the residence, officers discovered approximately 1.6 ounces of cocaine, 19.3 grams of molly, over 3 ounces of marijuana, one Ruger 5.7 handgun, 87 Oxycodone tablets, and over $3,600 in cash.
