Chattanooga police say citizens helped them shutdown a drug operation in the Mountain Creek Apartment complex.

Police say the citizens "smelled something & said something" that led to the arrest of James Green and Allante Novene. 

Both men were arrested for felony possession of marijuana and firearms. Officers seized more than a pound of marijuana, 3 loaded firearms, and numerous drug paraphernalia. 

James K. Green charged with possession of a firearm during commission or attempt to commit a crime, drugs for resale and possession of controlled substance.

Allante Novene charged with violation of probation, possession of control substance & possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police say our community becomes a safer place to live when citizens and police work together. #SeeSomethingSaySomething.
