    Investigators conducting surveillance March 15 around the Autumn Run Apartment Complex, off Webbs Lane,  said they observed Karl Hazzard distribute marijuana to the 17-year-old.
    Shortly thereafter, the state police Kent County Drug Unit and the Special Operations Response Team executed a search at the Hazzard’s residence, located in the same apartment complex, and seized just over 1 pound of marijuana, 5 grams of crack cocaine, a digital scale and $1,925 cash, police said.

    The 17-year-old teen was charged with criminal solicitation and posessession of drug paraphernalia, and released to the custody of his parents.  
    Police are seeking the public’s assistance in locating Jolanda Hazzard, who is wanted for lesser drug charges. She is described as a black female, 5 feet, 2 inches tall, weighing 160 pounds with brown eyes and dark hair.
