▪ More than 300 pounds of marijuana;

On Monday, the gang unit was following up on a months-long investigation of organizations trafficking narcotics, which led to seizure of the drugs and firearms.
Because of that investigation, police got a warrant for an apartment at the Addison Ridge Apartment complex, the department announced in a news release on Thursday.
At the apartment, police seized more than 275 grams of marijuana, an ounce of marijuana wax, 437 grams of cocaine and two handguns.

Davis was taken to the Cumberland County Detention Center where he posted bond and was released, police said.
Police next searched a home along the 1000 block of Ronald Reagan Drive on Tuesday, the site of Tori’s Playhouse, a childcare center.
Detectives searched the daycare after it was closed, so no children were on scene during the search, police said.
