KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WZZM) -- Police investigating an anonymous tip about drug trafficking out of a home in the 1100 block of Hotop Ave. in Kalamazoo ended up getting a search warrant and seizing weapons, body armor, and drug paraphernalia.
They also found housing violations and called in city housing inspectors, who condemned the home.
Authorities say the Kalamazoo Valley Enforcement Team searched the site on Wednesday. They found what they believe to be cocaine, several electronic scales, drug-packaging equipment, and cookware for making crack cocaine. They also found a protective ballistic vest, a sawed-off shutgun, and three other firearms -- two of which turned out to have been stolen.
Police are still investigating; authorities say they are pursuing charges. They want anyone with information on the case to call them at 269-337-8880 or Silent Observer at 269-343-2100.
