Citizens reporting suspicious activity led to an investigation and subsequent arrest of two Hammond men. The Lake County Sheriff's Department says the Lake County Drug Task Force executed a search warrant Tuesday morning in the 61-hundred block of Ray Avenue and found the men.  66-year old Leon King has charges pending for allegedly dealing Heroin, and 59-year old James Edwards was arrested for an active warrant for Failure to Appear for Resisting Arrest. The Sheriff's Department urges citizens to always report suspicious and seemingly unlawful activities to their Crime Hotline, 1-800-750-2746.
