(Caller) reported hearing strange animal sounds outside his front door. The officer discovered two recently born kittens on the door step.

Officers responded to (an apartment complex) and met with the manager of the apartment complex. The manager was getting an empty unit ready for new occupants, and she discovered packages of an unknown substance in one of the cabinets. The packages were turned over to the officers and tested positive for cocaine, meth and heroin.
