SF Police Seize Seven Pounds Of Illegal Drugs

SF Police Seize Seven Pounds Of Illegal Drugs
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Police have taken several pounds of pot and synthetic marijuana off the streets of Sioux Falls following a three-day investigation.

After monitoring a house on North Fairfax Avenue for drug activity Sunday night police arrested two men 29-year-old Ousman Dibba and 23-year-old Ervins Diaz-Herrera on drug charges. Police say the two men combined had six pounds of marijuana in their possession.

Following those two arrests on Sunday the Sioux Falls Area Drug Task Force got a search warrant for Diaz-Herrera's home at 714 North Menlo Avenue Tuesday. Inside they found a drug they haven't seen in a while; synthetic marijuana. Police say they found more than one pound of the drug along with $12,000 in cash.

"We've seen a small amount here and there but nothing of the quantities we've seen at least with this," Sam Clemens with Sioux Falls Police said.

Diaz-Herrera was picked up Sunday night for having too much window tinting after he left the home police were monitoring on Fairfax Avenue.

"Ended up finding out he had a revoked driver's license at the same time and they found three pounds of marijuana in his car," Clemens said.

Police also arrested Dibba Sunday in connection with the same investigation.

Police say the case was cracked thanks to a tip from the public about the possible drug activity in the neighborhood near 5th and Fairfax.

"Basically this big drug bust came apart from that information we received from that citizen and this is a great example of how we work with citizens. Good things happen when we can get information that comes from it," Clemens said.

Both men face felony drug charges. Police say more arrests are likely.
