On 7 March 2018, the New Castle City Police Department Narcotics Bureau and the Lawrence County District Attorney's Special Investigation Unit did serve a sealed search warrant on a residence located at 1108 Pin Oak Drive apartment 2D which is in the Oak Leaf Gardens Apartment complex (formerly Crestview Gardens) in the City of New Castle. Once forced entry was made into the residence, a male identified as Sanjuan ALLEN attempted to run towards the rear of the apartment. Members of the New Castle City Police Special Response Team (SRT) did detain ALLEN at that point. Officers viewed in plain view a black in color .45 caliber semi-automatic handgun (fully loaded) and a black in color Glock .40 caliber semi-automatic handgun (fully loaded) near ALLEN. ALLEN was subsequently taken into custody and a strip search was conducted by officers. Officers did locate a plastic bag protruding from the area of ALLEN’s buttocks. The plastic bag did contain approximately 14.9 grams of crack cocaine. Officers also located in the residence approximately $754 in cash, bag containing marijuana, numerous prescription pills, cell phones and three digital scales. ALLEN is being charged with possession with the intent to deliver a controlled substance, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
