HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) -
Hamilton Police say they seized a significant amount of drugs, money, guns and a bulletproof vest after serving four search warrants throughout the week.
Officers arrested five individuals on Tuesday and Wednesday following the investigations.
Authorities say the warrants served to 1887 Kahn Avenue and 859 Central Avenue were tied to a single investigation. Warrants were also served at 216 S. 11th Street and 1108 Grand Blvd. following stand alone investigations.
Items confiscated during the warrants service include: 34 grams of heroin, 12 grams of crack cocaine, 23 packets of marijuana packaged for sale, $2,200 in cash, a .380 cal. semi automatic pistol, a 40 cal. semi automatic pistol, a 12 gage shotgun and a bullet proof vest similar to ballistic vests worn by police officers.
Arrested in the search warrants include Nathaniel Riggins, Ricardo Thompson, Jamaceo Kaiser, Sherry Ivey and Ricardo Printup.
Riggins has been charged with drug abuse, weapons under disability, trafficking of drugs prepared for sale, drug abuse and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Thompson and Kaiser have both been charged with trafficking and possession of drugs. Kaiser also faces theft charges.
Ivey has been charged with possession of marijuana and Printup has been charged with two counts of drug abuse.
Chief of Police Scott praised the efforts of the VICE Detectives following the arrests.
"The work that police officers do when assigned to VICE duties is one of the most misunderstood duties that a police officer would do in their career," said Scrimizzi. " These officers must live their lives in the shadows, spend countless hours away from families, and often miss family functions due the requirements of their jobs. Due to the world they live in, they cannot, for their safety, be publicly recognized."
Those arrested will be arraigned in the Hamilton Municipal Court at dates and times set by the Court.
