DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Friday, Dayton police arrested a man they’re all too familiar with, after residents complained that he was bringing drugs into their neighborhood.
A search warrant didn’t come up empty.
During their raid, officers found cocaine, heroin, two handguns, and a few thousand dollars.
“We’re glad to get this off the street, especially the firearms,” Sgt. John Sullivan said. “To give you an example, as part of the search warrant there was a child that was inside the residence as we were serving it and these guns are easily accessible to this child. (And) the business of drug dealing tend(s) to be violent and this could put the whole neighborhood in danger.”
They arrested Brian Woods, 30. He will now face three felony charges, including possession of drugs.
Officers say it’s not Woods’ first run in with the law. Sgt. Sullivan tells 2 NEWS he’s been arrested before for robbery with a firearm and possession of a firearm.
Police say a woman was also found in the home, and may also be connected to the drug activity.
Authorities say they’re most concerned that a 9-year-old was living in Woods’ home.
Woods will have his first court hearing on his charges Monday.
Police encourage all residents to speak up when they think something is wrong in their neighborhood.
