HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - Two men have been arrested after police confiscated crack cocaine in Hamilton.

Charles Otis-Taylor Ventus, 20, of Hamilton, is charged with possession of crack cocaine and Burton Matthew Gabbard, 39, of Hamilton, was arrested on two outstanding traffic warrants from Hamilton Municipal Court.

A search warrant was served Wednesday in the 1600 block of Lincoln Avenue.

 "These arrests were precipitated by citizen complaints," said Chief Neil R. Ferdelman. "We encourage citizens to call our Vice Section if there appears to be drug activity in their neighborhood. Our detectives and officers will investigate each complaint. In this instance, their observations were vital in putting this house out of business."
