The case wrapped up on Monday (June 15) when police searched two homes on the city’s west side, and found more than $62,000 worth of drugs and cash proceeds of crime.

Officers seized 101-grams of meth, 54-grams of each carfentanil and cocaine, more than $29,000 in cash, as well as a taser, two replica firearms and two vehicles.
