DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton Police raided a home on Deleware Avenue Tuesday morning after learning from neighbors that drugs were being sold from the home.
The Dayton Police Department Drug Enforcement Unit executed a search warrant at a home located at 31 Deleware Avenue Tuesday morning. Police tell 2 NEWS they got several reports from neighbors that drugs were being sold from the home.
Police investigated and soon learned the concerns of the neighbors that heroin was being sold from the home were true. Sergeant John Sullivan of the Dayton Police Department Drug Enforcement Unit said this is especially of concern to police because of all the overdoses happening in Dayton and surrounding communities.
Police found cocaine and heroin inside the home.
Sullivan said they need the help of neighbors to combat the drug problems in the city. “We definitely need the input of the community, because, without them, there’s only a certain number of us in our whole department, especially just in our drug unit, and so the eyes and ears are the neighbors in our city and without them, stuff like this could not occur,” Sullivan told 2 NEWS.
Sullivan also encouraged other people to speak up if they see any suspicious activity. “We highly encourage folks, if you want your neighborhood to be cleaned up, to please report any suspicious activity to Crime Stoppers.” You can reach Crime Stoppers at 222-STOP (7867).
No one has been arrested in Tuesday’s raid. The investigation continues.
