JACKSONVILLE — The Jacksonville Police Department's criminal investigations division and a SWAT team located 29 grams of crack cocaine Wednesday night while executing a search warrant.

Det. James Oden said the search was the result of a seven-month investigation.

“No arrests were made at this time, but arrests are eminent as we continue through different stages of the investigation,” Oden said.

The search warrant was served about 7 p.m. Wednesday in the 1000 block of Churchill Street. Oden said a crowd gathered at the location, but no disruptions occurred.

Oden commended the public's part in drug investigations.

“We appreciate the public's interest and information they provide to us that lead to these types of investigation,” Oden said.
