Huntington Police and the FBI Violent Crime Task Force have seized 430 grams of pink fentanyl (about 4,300 doses of the deadly elephant tranquilizer) , $11,000 in cash, three guns, heroin, oxycontin, and marijuana from a residence in the 1200 block of Tenth Avenue. 

Martel Trayvell Easton, 19, was arrested following a brief scuffle and charged with four counts of possession with intent to deliver and battery on a police officer. Two additional suspects ran out the back door and remain at large.
