Five people were arrested on various narcotics related criminal charges including the possession and distribution of heroin, crack cocaine, and marijuana. 

Recovered from the two South 19th Street homes were more than 6150 decks (doses) of heroin, 30 grams of marijuana, and 30 grams of crack cocaine.  In addition to the narcotics, cash and ammunition of various calibers were seized. The total street value of the seized drugs exceeds $63,000.
