Daytona Drive Drug Bust

Good work by two Richmond Police officers Friday resulted in the seizure of more than 5 pounds of marijuana, narcotics pills, packaging material, scales, a hand gun and an AK-47 machine gun.

Third Precinct Officers Benjamin Frazer and Blake Letchford were investigating an assault around 11 p.m. Friday when they approached and spoke with an individual at 6601 Daytona Drive.

After doing a protective search of the residence, they found marijuana. The officers then obtained a search warrant and found more drugs, drug-distribution materials and guns inside the residence.

Michael C. McKinney, 55, was arrested at the address and charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana. More arrests are possible.
