The Brookhaven Police Department has arrested seven people who allegedly took part in a drug operation within the city.

On Dec. 14, police arrested 32-year-old Leon Robinson, 30-year-old Aaron Robinson, 30-year-old Jamil Harrison, 35-year-old Brandon Leggett, 30-year-old Anteneh Workeneh, 27-year-old Odyssey Garza, and 28-year-old Tynesha Matthews for possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, according to a press release. 

The arrest took place at a residence in the 1200 block of Bocking Way in Brookhaven. Police say they started investigating the residence in early December after a resident complained. According to the press release, police seized about 50 pounds of marijuana, four firearms, ammunition, cocaine, and prescription pills during the search. 

A spokesperson for the Brookhaven Police Department did not release arrest records for the incident because the case is pending prosecution. According to the initial incident report, the person who made the complaint said the residence would have many cars visit throughout the day and that the smell of marijuana was very strong around the house.

Update: this article has been updated with information from the initial incident report for this case.
