In one Social media post On Monday the department said, “A man calling to report a possible break-in is instead handcuffed. While officers searched his home for the suspected intruder, they found: 6,000 fentanyl pills, 392 grams of meth, $ 4,685 . “”

According to police, the incident occurred nearby on February 28 at around 6 p.m. Roosevelt Street and 15th Avenue.
