One search warrant was executed on Oxford Street and the other two were executed on High Street.

At these locations, investigators seized about 5,635 grams of suspected cocaine, two pistols, multiple boxes of ammunition, and over $28,090 in cash.

Both Ferrer and Amezquita were charged with the following:
