Neighbors’ anonymous tips lead to two drug arrests

HUNTINGTON – Numerous phone calls to the Huntington Police Department’s anonymous tip line led to the arrests of two men on drug charges Tuesday evening.

James Harris Adkins, 22, of 1026 21st St., was arrested at his residence about 7:30 p.m. and charged with possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver (heroin) and delivery of a controlled substance. David J. Glover, 35, of Huntington, also was arrested at the residence and charged with possession of a controlled substance (heroin) with intent to deliver.

The Police Department’s Special Emphasis Unit executed an arrest warrant and search warrant at Adkins’ residence after receiving information from neighbors through the department’s anonymous tip line during the past two months, according to Police Chief Jim Johnson.

While executing the search warrant, officers recovered a distribution amount of heroin, cash, scales, packaging materials consistent with the distribution of illegal narcotics and a firearm that was within reach of one of the suspects when officers entered a bedroom.

 

The arrests are a continuation of Operation: River to Jail, an initiative of the Police Department to eradicate illegal drug trafficking and associated crimes in the city.
