Goshen police conducted a search of a home in the 300 block of North Chicago Avenue Friday night after receiving several complaints about drug-related activity at the residence.

According to police, officers went to the home to speak with the occupants about the complaints. Officers were reportedly denied consent to search the home, so they obtained a search warrant.
