One person remains in custody following a Thursday morning raid at an Alton house. Police say the house in the 1100 block of Riley Avenue is a drug house. A sign indicating as much was placed in the front yard following the action.
The drug-related search warrant was executed with officers from the regional SWAT team and the APD Narcotics Division carrying out the raid. Alton Deputy Police Chief Marcos Pulido tells The Big Z the house came to their attention thanks to an involved community.
He says if you think there is a drug house in your neighborhood, you can report it anonymously either through their anonymous tip line (465-5948) or through a link on their website, which we have added below.
