     The Allen County Drug Task Force completed a 6 week long investigation that resulted in 2 separate felony arrests 

            Over the last 6 weeks Detectives with the Allen County Drug Task Force have been making purchases of crack cocaine from both Earl and Ricky Armour at various locations throughout Fort Wayne. 

 

           Both cases were closed successfully Wednesday night after a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by Earl Armour in which Ricky Armour was found to be riding in as a passenger.
