Police say tips from the community led them to arrest a man and confiscate over 15 pounds of marijuana, a high powered rifle and about $6,000 in cash. The NOPD Major Case Narcotics Unit arrested 55-year-old Freddie Ivory on Friday inside a home on Pauger Street. 

Investigators say they started doing surveillance on the home after tips from concerned citizens. They say during that time, they witnessed illegal drug activity and obtained a search warrant for the home. 

After recovering the drugs, gun and cash, investigators transported Ivory to Central Lock-up and booked him accordingly.
