Albany -- Illegal drug activities in South Central Albany led to a sting by the Albany Doughty Drug Unit. Working with nine other law enforcment agencies, ADDU agents conducted road blocks and executed search warrants Friday night.

They ended up arresting 11 suspects and seizing cocaine and marijuana. Seven people were arrested at roadblocks at Gordon Avenue and South Madison Street and South McKinley Street and Cotton Avenue. The charges ranged from marijuana possession to driving with a suspended license.

Agents searched Marco's Grocery and a home on Cotton Avenue and seized cash. marijuana, and alcohol from the store that lost its liquor license after a previous raid.

"We'll be working with code enforcement on the licensing issues. The person that was in the store was charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. We re also going to look with the D. A.'s office about possible seizure of this store," said Maj. Derrell Smith, ADDU Commander.

Agents also executed a search warrant at 910 Rood Avenue where they seized marijuana, cocaine, and several hand guns.

27-year-old Zerike Montez Jones is charged with possession of marijuana and cocaine with intent to distribute and seven counts of reckless conduct for children living in the home. Megan Marshall was also charged with possession of marijuana.
