Martin Artega, 28, of 1806 Lake St., was arrested last Wednesday evening at his home by officers who executed a search warrant on the property in what Police Commander Tom Guenther says was the culmination of a lengthy, multi-level investigation.

Guenther says officers also found a small amount of crack cocaine, digital scales and plastic sandwich bags that they believe were used in preparing drugs for sale.
