Drugs, stolen items, and $150,000 in cash found inside home

A crime at a Georgetown home led police to a much bigger discovery.

Last month, Georgetown Police responded to a home invasion at a home on Marks Street.

When police returned to the home Wednesday morning, it was to arrest one of the victims.

Georgetown Police say they found drugs, stolen items, and at least $150,000 in cash inside the home.

Police say 55-year-old Mabel Soto lives at the home with several children.

Police were first called to the home on July 29, following a home invasion, during which an 11-year-old boy was held at gunpoint.

Following that incident, police launched an investigation. They say they had informants buy pills from Soto.

Soto now faces several charges, including trafficking marijuana, receiving stolen property, and trafficking in a controlled substance.

Police also arrested 21-year-old Justin Scott and 33-year-old Walter Cline.

Scott is charged in connection with a probation violation, while Cline was arrested on a couple of warrants.

Georgetown Police say the stolen goods found at the home include Nintendo game systems, televisions, cell phones, and home appliances.

Police say those goods were traded for pills.

Police brought social services with them Wednesday morning when they executed the search warrant. They say the children are now in the care of social services.
