FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE)- Several people are under arrest after the Fort Wayne Police Department served two warrants at local motels Friday, uncovering heroin, marijuana, and spice.
Police served the warrants in order to shut down what they suspected to be a heroin trafficking operation run by Kijuan Adams, 35, of Battle Creek, Michigan.
Officers arrested Adams at around 3:30 p.m. in the parking lot of the Motel 6 at 3003 West Coliseum Boulevard, where the warrant served turned up paraphernalia.
Adams had earlier been seen leaving a room at the Knights Inn at 2901 Goshen Road. When officers knocked on the door of the room, investigators said three males were inside and a strong smell of burning marijuana was also emanating from inside.
Police served a search warrant on the room at about 6:30 p.m. and the search yielded 1.2 grams of spice, 10.4 grams of marijuana and 9.3 grams of heroin. The search of another room Adams had rented at the Knights Inn yielded 67 grams of spice and a loaded handgun.
In addition to the arrest of Adams on five counts of dealing heroin, police arrested Mario Lorenzo Edwardo Burton, 33, of Battle Creek, Michigan, on charges of probation violation and body attachment for back child support.
The other males in the rooms were arrested on misdemeanor charges of visiting a common nuisance.
Bond for Adams is set at $250,000.
