During the execution of the search warrant yesterday, Investigators discovered illegal narcotics inside two bedrooms of the apartment.  Inside one bedroom, which belonged to Kennel, Investigators seized approximately 1.8 pounds of marijuana along with a quantity of Oxycodone. Inside the bedroom that belonged to Earl, Investigators seized a quantity of Alprazolam, Tramadol, MDMA (Ecstasy) and Marijuana.
