HPD arrest two in investigations

HARLINGEN — In response to community concerns, Harlingen Police Department’s Organized Crime Unit Investigations Division, executed a narcotics search warrant at a home on the 500 block of North “J” Street.

Two adults were taken into custody and later transported to the city jail for arraignment on formal charges.

During the search of the home, officers and investigators located and seized suspected marijuana, cocaine, alprazolam, money and an illegal weapon, police said.

Police Chief Jeffry Adickes said the community and the police department are committed to a city that holds quality of life, public safety, and the health and well being of all its citizens as its highest values.

“No child should have to walk past a house selling drugs to go to school or get to the bus stop,” Adickes said on his Facebook page Friday.

The owner of the residence is being notified of the results of this search warrant and that suspected illegal drugs were present.
