As a result of intense monitoring of that area, officers discovered that drugs were being sold out of 6 Jacob St. Officers then launched an investigation and developed further proof that drugs were being sold out of that location based on surveillance and first hand knowledge. Based on the information gathered during their surveillance and investigation officers applied for and were granted a search warrant for 6 Jacob Street.Today, Friday, March 30, 2007, officers from District B-3 Drug Unit armed with a Dorchester Court search reported to 6 Jacob St. and executed the search warrant.
