FIRST REPORT

Dayton police executed an undercover search warrant today, April 20 and seized about 20 grams of crack cocaine. 

Sgt. Kelly Hamilton, of the street crimes/drug unit, said a search warrant was executed at 2706 E. Second St. where a male and female were taken into custody without incident. 

Hamilton said police started to investigate after neighborhood complaints several weeks ago.

"They all compiled very well; it’s a typical crack house, not much in there, junk usually,” Hamilton said. 

The house will become a nuisance property, Hamilton said. 

No weapons or cash were found in the home.

Dayton 2-month-old found dead in home

In what appears to be a tragic accident, a Dayton family is grieving the loss of a 2-month-old boy.

“To hear something like that is real said,” said D.J. Hopgood. He knew something was wrong Saturday morning after he looked out the window of his Bowen Street home.

“Looked outside and I see about two to three cruisers up the street, which is kind of odd for this neighborhood,” he said.

Police and medics rushed to a home in the 600 block of Bowen Street around 8:30 a.m.; the baby’s grandmother called 911 immediately after she found him unresponsive. He was pronounced dead at 8:37 a.m. by Dayton medics. His body was then taken to the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office, where his cause of death is pending.

“It’s a shame, it’s a big surprise,” said another neighbor, Todd Pedicord. As a father, he said it’s difficult to hear that news from just up the street.

“It’s terrible. I can’t Imagine what the parents are going through,” he said.

The baby’s mother told police when she returned home from work at midnight, Silas already was asleep on a love seat so she lay down on a couch to sleep. She checked him at 3 a.m., and he was fine. But when Silas’ grandmother got up to check on him at 8:30 a.m., she found him on his belly. She rolled him over, but he was cold to the touch, according to a Dayton police report.

The infant’s mother and grandmother said he had no illnesses or known health issues.

An investigator with the coroner’s office said an autopsy has not been performed, and that a preliminary cause of death was not available.

Dayton OVI crash

A passenger in a car detained at an OVI checkpoint Friday night hopped in the driver’s seat, took off and crashed into a pole while the driver was taking a sobriety test.

The driver was held for testing around 10 p.m. at a Montgomery County OVI Task Force check in the area of Salem and Hillcrest avenues in Dayton.

That’s when one of his two passengers got in the driver’s seat and drove off, Sgt. Matt Robinson of the Ohio State Highway Patrol’s Dayton Post said.

The four-door sedan then crashed into a pole in the 3300 block of North Main Street. The car glanced off the pole into the middle of the street, blocking the southbound lanes of North Main Street, which was covered in debris.

The two occupants bailed and evaded capture. However, the detained driver provided police with their names.

Law enforcement that responded to the scene included the highway patrol, Dayton police and Montgomery County deputies.
