Lebanon detectives and SWAT team officers found just what they were looking for during a narcotics-related search of two homes Thursday afternoon.

In a search-warrant execution at about 3 p.m. at 1696A Classicview Drive, police Chief Scott Bowen said officers found and seized 3 ounces of what is believed to be powder and crack cocaine, ¼-pound of what is believed to be marijuana and 260 prescription pills. He said the pills alone have a street value of about $15,000.

Detectives also seized a vehicle and drug paraphernalia, including scales and small plastic bags. Bowen said both residents – who weren’t identified – are on parole and have previous drug-related charges.

Bowen said detectives also seized a small amount of what is believed to be cocaine and marijuana at 1692B Classicview Drive. One of the residents at that home was also on parole. State Department of Children’s Services caseworkers were also called to the scene because children were living in the home.

Bowen said numerous complaints were called in recently concerning both townhomes. He said investigators believe narcotics were sold at both addresses.

Charges related to both search warrants are pending, Bowen said.
