During the search, investigators discovered six cookies of crack cocaine packaged in sandwich bags, seven bags of powder cocaine, a gallon-sized bag of marijuana and a cocaine press which contained some of the cocaine, in the kitchen of the residence. In the living room, officers found two quart-sized bags of marijuana, digital scales and $1216.00."Every time we are able to get a drug dealer off our streets, it is proof that the cooperation between local and federal law enforcement agencies is working.
