He said officers executed a search warrant June 27 in the 700 block of Melrose Avenue.

Police seized 26 Yeti Mugs and 37 pairs of glasses, along with half a gram of suspected crystal methamphetamine and a small amount of suspected cocaine.

She was released from custody on a promise to appear in court at a later date.
