KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The Knoxville Police Department's Repeat Offender Squad has arrested five people after executing a search warrant at a North Knoxville home.
The Knoxville Police Department received multiple complaints that drugs were being sold at 123 E. Springdale Ave.

Witnesses say one of those men jumped into the back of car which they later found at Tennova Hospital, formerly St. Mary's
Hospital. Three people from that car were eventually found.
Inside the home, officers found marijuana, multiple boxes of ammunition, counterfeit money, a flatscreen TV possibly taken in a
recent home burglary, and other electronics.
