A police search of a Findlay home this week turned up drugs and cash, according to law enforcement officials.

At 8:46 p.m. Tuesday, police executed a search warrant at 430 Findlay St., according to Detective Sgt. Justin Hendren of the Hancock METRICH Drug Enforcement Unit.

Discovered in the raid were heroin, cash, drug paraphernalia, prescription medication and criminal tools, Hendren said.
