NEW CASTLE — One man was arrested in connection with an early morning raid today at a South Side home.

Members of the District Attorney’s drug task force and special investigative unit and the New Castle police at 7 a.m. served a sealed search warrant at 1601 Rear Hamilton St., where they arrested 66-year-old Ronald Crawford.

New Castle police chief Bobby Salem said the police visit to the home stemmed from numerous complaints the police had received about possible drug activity there.

Officers conducting the search found plastic bags of suspected cocaine and cash.

Charges are pending against Crawford, police said.
