Huntington Residents Help Police Nail Two More Detroit Drug Suspects

Two people from Detroit were arrested on felony drug charges Wednesday night.

Members of the Huntington Violent Crime Drug Task Force and Huntington Police Department’s SWAT Team and Special Emphasis Unit executed a search warrant about 6 p.m. at an apartment complex in the 6300 block of U.S. 60.

Inside the residence, investigators found distribution amounts of heroin, cocaine, pills, liquid codeine an marijuana. They also found multiple firearms and cash.

A man and a woman, both of whom are from Detroit, were arrested. Their names and charges are not being released at this time.

Huntington Police Chief Jim Johnson said the raid was made possible because of area residents who became suspicious of activity at the apartment complex and passed along information to police. Johnson said information from residents has increased since the start of Operation: River to Jail, an effort to eradicate drug trafficking from Huntington.
