Emergency calls to the Pima County Sheriff's Department led to a drug bust on Tucson's east side Tuesday night.

According to sheriff's spokeswoman Dawn Barkman, emergency crews were dispatched to the 9100 block of Loma Linda Place around 9 p.m. in reference to suspicious activity.

Several 911 calls were made to the Pima County Sheriff's Department indicating a possible break-in or a home invasion.

Upon arrival, deputies made entry into the residence at which time 1,051 bales of marijuana (21,000 lbs.) with a street value of more than $10 million dollars was found.

Sixteen kilos of cocaine was also located along with assault rifles and body armor. No one

was located inside the residence.

The Counter Narcotics Alliance (CNA) was called to further investigate. At this time, members from CNA continue to investigate the incident.

How do you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women?

During the Jan. 20 town council meeting, a vote was unanimously passed to look into the feasibility of a “Memorial Public Art Project,” at the request of Oro Valley resident Dick Eggerding to potentially be placed somewhere in the town to honor military veterans and first responders. Though no concrete plans were then ready to act on, there was a show of overwhelming support for such project from residents and staff alike during the council meeting. In an effort to poll to community at-large, The Explorer would like to know how you feel about a potential memorial art project to honor our community’s bravest men and women.
