Following the cocaine purchase from Owens, CNT obtained arrest warrants for Owens to include Sale of a Controlled Substance. Owens was taken into custody by CNT without incident. Also on yesterday, CNT conducted a search of Owens’ residence located in the 300 block of Lawton Avenue.
"There, agents seized a trafficking amount of crack cocaine, items commonly utilized in the distribution of controlled substances and more than $900 in U.S. currency. A total of two vehicles were also seized," CNT says.
