ATLANTA -- Police made two arrests on Monday for narcotics that were being sold at a store in downtown Atlanta.

Officer John Chafee said on Monday that the police department had been getting complaints about possible illegal activity going on at Fox Market, located at 90 Broad Street in the Five Points neighborhood.

Undercover officers investigated, and found that illegal drugs were being bought and sold at Fox Market.  While executing a search warrant on Friday, March 1, investigators found that food items for sale were covered in dust.  Some grocery items had expired several years, ago, Chafee said.

Investigators found two digital scales next to the cash register, one of which had a small amount of marijuana on it.  Chafee said they also found several plastic storage bins under the register, which had a large amount of cash.

In a search of the store's basement, investigators found a box. Inside were 12 small bags that contained cocaine, and 7 that contained marijuana.

Chafee reported that investigators seized just over $4,500, around four grams of marijuana and more than three grams of cocaine.

Police arrested the Fox Market's owner, Mohammed Miah, and charged him with possession of cocaine with intent to distribute and possession of marijuana with intent to distribute.

Maggie Zellner was also arrested and charged with selling marijuana.  She's charged with also previously selling marijuana to undercover investigators.
