DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A Crime Stoppers tip lead to the arrests of five people, including one accused of endangering a child.

These are people who police believe have been contributing to the heroin problem in Dayton.

The tip came to police about drug activity at 824 and 826 Troy Street.

Residents spoke up and police listened.

Officers arrested Michael Williams Jr., 27, and Ryan Wilson, 29, both for felony drug possession.

Police say two other people were arrested on warrants and another person was taken to jail on a preliminary charge of child endangering.

“Due to prior investigations, the drug unit was familiar with these individuals and an investigation was conducted and a search warrant was served on both halfs of the double, in which heroin, steroids, pot, ecstasy and about 20,000 in muscle grade air conditioning units were all recovered,” a detective told 2 NEWS.

The undercover officer considers those who live in this neighborhood, the old north Dayton community, his eyes and ears.

“Unfortunately, due to our geographical location, is kind of a distribution point of a movement of drugs, especially heroin nowadays. So, any time we can make a dent in that is good as far as we are concerned,” he said.
