On Tuesday morning in Wichita near 18th & Grove, the Violent Crimes Community Response Team used a search warrant.

This occurred at the home of a teenage boy and a 19-year-old man, both gang-members, in the 1900 block of N. Ash. Upon executing the warrant, the 16-year-old was arrested and booked into the Juvenile Detention Center for possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia, and criminal possession of a firearm.

During the search, officers located marijuana-packaging materials, cash, a handgun, and ammunition.
