— A Janesville man was arrested Sunday on multiple charges after the Janesville Police Department Street Crimes Unit executed a search warrant at his 165 S. High St. apartment, according to a department news release.

Romaine D. Isby, 32, was arrested on charges of possession with the intent to deliver crack cocaine, maintaining a drug house, possession of drug paraphernalia and unlawful possession of prescription drugs, the release said.

The search also resulted in the seizure of 10.5 grams of crack cocaine, multiple prescription pills and drug paraphernalia, the release said.

The arrest comes after a months-long investigation into crack cocaine sales in the Fourth Ward neighborhood, according to the release.

This is the third arrest announced in the Fourth Ward effort. Police on Friday arrested a man and woman on cocaine-trafficking charges after executing a search warrant at their home at 253 S. Franklin St.
