Officers from the Youngstown Police Department's Vice Unit arrested one man after raiding a South Side home where they found some of the most popular illegal street drugs.

Armed a warrant signed by a judge, police say they searched a home at 384 Chicago Avenue on Wednesday where they say they found cash, a scale, baggies of marijuana, Tramadol pills, cocaine, crack cocaine, as well as the powerful and sometimes deadly opiate, Fentanyl.

The police report listed an inventory of the items found during the search:

  • Loose marijuana on the dining room table
  • A clear bag of marijuana found in the backyard
  • Four baggies of marijuana in the home – one in an upstairs bedroom

  • 35 bags of crack cocaine in the bedrooms and kitchen cabinet
  • 1 bag and 13 bindles of heroin in the kitchen cabinet
  • 1 bag of Fentanyl in the freezer

Police arrested 46-year-old Robert Wilkins, alias “Stank”, booking him into the county jail on charges of drug possession and trafficking.
