Search Warrants Result in Large Drug Seizures

Thanks to the hardworking sector officers, Richmond Police seized more than 6 pounds of narcotics and approximately $20,000 in cash during two separate searches this weekend.

On Friday night in the East End, Sector 111 officers searched a residence in the 2400 block of Burton Street and seized $7,000 in cash and approximately 23 grams of crack cocaine. A warrant was also issued for the resident.

On Sunday night in the Fan area, Sector 313 Officers Daniel Dixon and Matthew Sacksteder responded to a residence in the 2900 block of Idlewood Avenue after receiving a complaint for the smell of marijuana.

After receiving permission to enter the residence, the officers saw several narcotic-related items. A search later resulted in the seizure of approximately 5 to 6 pounds of marijuana, $12,000 to $13,000 in cash, cell phones and a computer.

Resident Bryce T. McClellan, 22, was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

These seizures are the direct result of the good investigative work of the sector patrol officers in the city.
