Once this information was obtained the search warrant was served.

At the residence when the warrant was served was 27-year old Dontavious Harvey who was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute.
Law enforcement officials say the investigation is ongoing and Harvey could face additional charges and that even more arrests could be forthcoming.
