Four people were arrested Wednesday afternoon when local, state and federal law enforcement agents raided two homes as part of a drug investigation.

Mildred Bailey, 60; Damon Ellis, 37; Devon Rice, 24; and Deonte Winston, 25, were arrested on drug and weapons charges during the raid of two residences by the Montgomery County RANGE Task Force along with the state Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The suspects are being held in the Montgomery County Jail awaiting formal charges.

News Center 7 caught up with the county task force at a duplex in the 300 block of Liscum Drive in Jefferson Twp.

Undercover officers broke down the door and executed a search of the home. A car, big screen TV, guns and other items concealed in bags were seen being carried out.

Earlier, the officers executed a search of a home in the 2200 block of Falmouth Avenue in Harrison Twp. as part of the same investigation.

Detectives seized several ounces of heroin and crack cocaine, seven handguns, and approximately $18,000 in cash from the two residences, according to the task force.

The case remains under investigation.
